In amongst all my book expo america booty was James Howe’s the misfits and totally joe. I read them yesterday. Yes, both of them. Wonderful, funny, heart-warming (in the non-chundery way). They had all the merits of fine writing and of shortness (oh, how I love short books!). They made me happy.
Particulary, the misfits on account of how it is influenced-like by the writings of mister damon runyon who I hear from a not entirely disreputable party is not without a certain amount of merit. if you haven’t already read them do so immediately. Well, except for totally joe which isn’t out till September—oh how I love b.e.a. booty!
Update: Scott has posted an account of our day at the b.e.a so I don’t have to. What he said.
