No I never read it, but Adam Davies, the guy who did the Frog King, has a new book out called Goodbye Lemon. You turned me on to him. But I'm still not sure if he turns me on. I think he is very good at prose, but I can't get into his dialouge. It makes me cringe at times.

Check out 'Busted Flush' by Brad Smith, great book. My brother has me reading 'Perv, a love story'. So far so good.

I know all about your zany style. I have just had a real busy/shitty couple of weeks. One of my best friends, a guy who coached me in baseball and I coached with for the last 5 years saw fit to fling himself off of the Second Narrows bridge just before Halloween. He also had just had his first book published and I never got to tell him how much I enjoyed reading it. I'm still in shock mixed with a very unhealthy dose of anger. I'll send you my address from home tonight, I would love to read a book written by a friend and have the chance to tell him how much I liked it.

It sucks when people kill themselves, but it's completely understandable why they do so.

Some people are too sensitive to live in this world. I would like to read the book as well. Is it available?

"Watching the reel as it comes to a close/brutally taking its time"

This Joy Division lyric I kept hearing in my head today.
