Too Much

Sometimes there are too many lists. There are too many obligations/projects/assignments/to-do's. And I miss skating aorund the kitchen floor. I miss watching bad B movies. I miss not feeling as though someone is standing on my chest. Busy, busy, busy. Check out Drawings by Sam Brown.

It's fall and that's sad. My toes will soon feel ice-like and I'll be bundled in layers of long underwear and old sweaters. Sigh... Anyhow, here's your fall reading list:

1. Middlesex - Jeffrey Eugenides (epic novel concerning a Greek family and a hermaphrodite)

2. Lunar Park - Brett Austin Ellis (a faux memoir for fans, he's crazy)

3. Tolstoy Lied, A Love Story - Rachel Kodiak (a sweet, talented her!)

4. Lawn Boy - Paul Lisicky (great writer, great guy, stunning novel)

5. Will You Please Be Quiet Please? - Raymond Carver (a wonderful collection, praise him)

6. Bingo Under the Crucifix - Laurie Foos (impeccable sense of style & skill, my hero)

7. Where the Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak (classic kid tale, I want to be king of all wild things too)

8. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time - Mark Haddon (a winning novel with a winning hero)

9. Alternatives to Sex - Stephen McCauley (a book about love, a super artist)

10. Are You There God, It's Me, Margaret - Judy Blume (becasue I still don't know what she's talking about)

I'm a writer of fiction. Currently, I'm finishing up my first collection of short stories titled, Dirty One. Check out one of my pieces in Velvet Mafia. Enjoy!


Hello Everyone! Happy Independence Day! I hope you're all BBQing, eating chips and dip and getting hammered on some sunny deck. But remember, this holiday isn't merely an excuse to party. Thank God (or Buddha or whoever's up in the sky) that we are all free to do whatever we want to do in this country (sort of). So...three cheers for freedom! Now, let's start funneling beer!
