The good news is I have a fantastic new book of stories to recommend called Simplify, by Tod Goldberg. The bad news is it doesn’t come out until September. The good news is that you can read Tod’s blog in the meantime, which is very entertaining. There’s no more bad news.
Things this book has in it:
a Jesus who hangs out at Gay Pride Parades and Toys R’ Us and Starbucks.
a bleeding portrait of Elvis
the Loch Ness monster
It’s also smart, funny, painful, heartelt, and overall awesome. If you want more than that from a book, I don’t know think I know you anymore.
