it was amazing
bookshelves: to-finish-later
Read in March, 2008

I laughed out loud multiple times while reading (quietly, because students were taking finals) and kept having to put the book down because I kept running into sentences that were amazing and made me extremely jealous at the same time. I kept having to ask, Did I just read that? Really? I'm only seventy pages into this, so I'll stop rambling. But, c'mon, this is great. Thanks Matt for making me notice this. Thanks Pam for reminding me to buy this. Thanks Amy Hempel for being one of my new favorite writers.

Matt I teared up trying to tell someone about the chimp from "Al Jolson." I want school to be over so I can finish this.

Elise Isn't that incredible? I mean, talk about a perfectly crafted story. That chimp.
