RE: Ed is on the Blu-Ray edition of the Coen Brothers' True Grit!
Do you still have my copy of Personal Days? You know, the Ed Park novel that I "borrowed" from Laars, who bought it because the L.A. Times compared it to Vonnegut and he hearts Vonnegut....
Hmmm, maybe I'll just buy my own copy. It's paperback, so it's super-cheap...the recession blah blah blah...Woah...The NYT says PD is a "layoff narrative for our times"...Time magazine top 10?! PEN Hemingway finalist? One of THE ATLANTIC's top 10 pop cultural moments of the DECADE? This seriously sounds like the best book ever and I can't believe I lent it to you—you still have my copy of The Girl Who Kicked Over the Hornet's Nest!
(Yikes! Maxine is around ze corner............)
I'm just going to buy Personal Days right now and someday we should all go hear him read.
Gonna grab some chow soon—do you want anything from the outside world?
PS: Jonah sent me this song.
