Bob Smith has read at In The Flesh and is wonderful and hilarious. I highly recommend his novel Selfish and Perverse and the few pages I've read of his new one, Remembrance of Things I Forgot, are wonderful. Here's the first sentence:
It's safe to say your relationship is finished if the only way you can imagine solving your problems is by borrowing a time machine.
I also liked this sentence:
Powrerful forearms always get me; there's something irresistible attractive about a man who looks as if he could break my heart with his bare hands.
I will warn you that if you're a Republican, especially a Log Cabin Republican...you might not love your portrayal in this book. And hopefully that is actually an endorsement for most people reading this blog!
And you can hear Bob read tomorrow night free at Drunken! Careening! Writers! For so long I couldn't attend because my night and DCW were the same, but now I can attend. And I'm reading in November!
