I linked to a series of posts by John Ellert quite some time ago – it was some of the funniest writing I’d seen in a long time, and I still highly recommend you read it. I bring it up, because the subject of his first story has come back to haunt him, as he explains in a more recent post. Go read the original four parts of the story – you won’t regret it – and then you’ll be dying to hear what will happen this summer, as I am. John is a bit of a sporadic blogger, but perhaps with a few more comments, we can pressure him into telling us what happens next…
On a more serious note, I’ve been recently buried in a book of essays, called How to Be Alone, by Jonathan Franzen, and was happy to stumble across Nathan Bransford’s recent post about seeing Franzen speak in person. I really like hearing one author’s take on another. Check it out.
Congrats to Monica Lee, whose memoir is being released this summer. She posts her Prologue here, and after reading it, I am definitely going to keep an eye out for the book launch.
And, finally, who do you know that writes like this? “My brain be scattered, like the bones of a zombie on the highway of a free-wheeling granny.” There’s only one person, and if you haven’t subscribed so you don’t miss a post, you should.
