And speaking of warm-up plugs, the official Favorite Writer of The Donk Who Actually Replies to Our E-Mails, Karl Iagnemma, dropped us a line today to let us know that his debut short story collection, On the Nature of Human Romantic Interaction
, was released today. I've written before about this unique and talented writer with the most impressive and babe-magnetizing bio I've ever seen
, so if you haven't spent all your money on amusing t-shirts you should definitely plunk down a couple bucks for his book, either that or sneak into my room while I'm at work, slip on some of my clothes, grab a can of Dr Pepper from the fridge, take down the book from the shelf and play "Donk for A Day." I'd recommend the former, frankly.
You can buy the book at Barnes & Noble
or get off your lazy ass and check out one of the readings he'll be doing in the Boston area
. (There's something called "Books and Brews" that sounds promising, though I'd probably recommend waiting for the June 18 Roslindale reading he'll be doing with Steve Almond
, another excellent writer whose book I actually paid hardback money for. Hey, wait, I just noticed that he'll be doing a Manhattan reading as well, so that's cool, too. Why don't you figure it out for yourself.)
