The Hampton Smoker

What's up wtih what's going down? Does a tree falling on the ocean with no one around make a sound? Barbecue, BBQ, Bar-b-que. It's all in how you sell it.

The Roach Coach

Tom Perrotta, if you are listening, I just want to tell you that you rock. Your books are fresh air in the windowless room of american contemporary fiction.

I'm finishing Joe College right now and have read Election, Bad Haircut and The Wishbones-- all of which are exceptionally smart, funny and honest books that paint an accurate portrait of growing pains-- even those which hit in early adulthood. Your writing is like a conversation with a lifelong friend, a person you can't b.s., someone who has seen you gangly and awkward and applauded your bravest moments of suave.

I'll let this gushfest end by saying in my dreams of writing, my words come out sounding like yours. Good stuff.
