    "What's up with Chuck?"

    I enjoy this guy. He is charming is an acerbic kind of way. He keeps me engaged and often entertained, like a literary Howard Stern or a drunken David Sedaris. The fact that he read this himself makes this work (and also contributes to his own self-obsession). The ending story, though, really takes an odd turn, and not because of the one in a billion event that fictionally happens to him. Usually he reports on a fringe lifestyle or waxes on the virtues of some brainless celebrity, but here he shows us this life that I took to be basically his own-- and it is ugly and dispiriting. It was much like being forced to watch the sex tape of Dustin Diamond, better known as "Screech" from Saved by the Bell (a favorite of his).

    Still, he is fun. Just perhaps start with "Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs" to fully understand his charrm first before you try to injest some of the discussion here.

    Any additional comments?

    Chuck Klosterman has quickly become one of my new favorite authors still currently doing work today. He ranks among the best. I especially recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of David Sedaris. Similar in many ways but Klosterman has a special charm to his writing that you can't find anywhere else.

    "Chuck is the man!"

    The first story is a bit boring but hang in there. It is well worth it. Chuck Klosterman is hilarious.
