Burning Down the House

It’s such a relief when someone you know comes out with a book and it actually does well right away, because then you don’t feel like a schmuck for forgetting to blog about it on its publication date. Larry Smith‘s Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure is that kind of animal. I totally blew my share of the touting process, but there’s no guilt here because it is a New York Times best-seller. Whew! The book is hilarious, by the way, and here’s what my six-word memoir would be: I gotta say, monkey hate clean.

I’m interviewing Woody Harrelson for Time Out New York today. My life is pretty awesome sometimes.

I’m also going to put the “zoo” in Kalamazoo today at 7pm. And the “chic” in Chicago tomorrow. Not sure what I’ll be putting in Minneapolis on Saturday — maybe the “neap”?
