    1. I m getting behind again, so I ll make this quick I liked this for the most part It was pretty fluffy and there were parts where Wenzel seemed to be trying too hard to be clever But I love most books about writers, artists, or dancers, and this one was no exception I admit to being a bit of a literary snob like the protags of the book, but I can laugh about it and make fun of myself for sure The idea of advertising in the middle of a novel nearly gave me a heart attack I really hope it never com [...]

This was a weird book for me I m not a fan of literature that tries so hard to be literature, or books that look like they came out of an MFA workshop, so I was prepared to toss this aside after a couple of chapters Then, despite the characters running the gamut from annoying to downright offensive, I found myself curious to see what would happen next I knew, this having the overtones of a tragedy, that someone would die, someone would have an ill advised affair, and things wouldn t end up much [...]

    5. I loved this send up of among many other things encroaching advertisement in literature I have been noticing this very disturbing trend of product placement in many novels and this author is the first I ve read that addresses it The books heroes are sort of mavericks and I think Wenzel may fit in that category as well.

    7. Elegant prose, but a lot of sitcomical contrivance Feel like this book probably plays well in New York, but to outsiders of the literati scene this reads as a bit of an inside joke.
