Among the Literati XXXIX

It'd be a stretch to call Glenn Gaslin an old college chum, but he is slightly older than I am, we did go to college together, and I do consider him a friend. That said, his novel, Beemer, just came out, and it's good. Really good. Look for a review next month. (That said, last month's book review roundup should hit Media Diet soon. Maybe later today, even.) Justin Chang of the Orange County Register recently interviewed Glenn about his wandering childhood, first book failure, and the deflationary realities of urban sprawl, advertising, marketing, and Orange County -- crafting a good look at the man between the covers and behind the book. Great press, Glenn!
