Read This Book And Get Back to Me, It’s Insane

Ken Kalfus is an old pal of mine now and a great guy and widely acclaimed, nominated for the National Book Award and the Pen/Faulkner Award and what all and yet it’s astonishing to me that more often than not when I mention Ken Kalfus to some very well-read people they say “Who?” I frankly don’t get it. Read this book and try to put it down and see how you do.

You are totally the new Oprah.

Wait, are there car keys under my seat right now?

(A brief caesura as I check.)

It's true, I wield tremendous litetary influence over my... twelve readers here at the bert.

Quality, not quantity, rules the roost B.

Besides, I hear the rumor that when Oprah started her book club, she only had Stedman and one of her key grips as members, so you have that going for you....

/and Stedman was not very enthusiastic and never finished the books in time for discussion to boot.
