Ah, Texas. Publishers usually ship you to the Texas Festival of the Book in Austin. Sometimes Dallas or Houston. I'll see how much leeway I can get.

Yes, and I'm still going to push you to read Thom Jones and Joy Williams. You're working toward a life where you get to tax deduct books.

You've seen just the smallest preview in the "sex dolls in the lake" story posted here. That's a small portion of a small portion of this book.

Have your people call my people. And by my people I mean I know a lovely small bookstore and/or affiliated writing center just west of Boston that would be thrilled to host an event 👀

My friend is great at mimicking old-style illustration. It's Roald Dahl but with more sex and violence.

Your friend did an incredible job. And I cannot wait to read it!

Roald Dahl was my favorite as a kid!

Considering what happened with Roald Dahl’s books recently, that’s perhaps a bold claim to make.

That makes me think of a clip from Family Guy where Brian and Stewie attend a book reading from Dr. Seuss and his new book. Dr. Seuss reads, "When the drugs stopped numbing the pain, the sex became even more violent."

No, wait, Seuss has to rhyme. "When the drugs stopped numbing the pain / The soldering iron was put to use again."
