I So Totally Love Mary Karr

Yes! Yes! Yes! If anyone is qualified to comment on the whole fake writer week debacle, it’s Mary Karr. If you haven’t read it, you should read The Liar’s Club, which in my opinion is as fine an example of the genre as there is.

While watching a rerun of the Larry King interview last night, I thought: Gee, what a sniveling, pathetic dude. Guy can't beat Larry King in a debate? A Larry Freaking King interview gets the guy shifty and squirming?

Guilty as charged, and daft, to boot.

This is where we all get to be glad that, in general, people get what's coming to them. I know that doesn't always happen, but it has happened here. The guy lost his credibility, which, while nobody will take his bank account away from him, will still be the cross he bears for the rest of his work.

But the rest of his work will be fiction!

Speaking of which, Liar's Club is a book that I stopped reading after about twenty pages because I didn't believe a single word of it.
