BUY the bat city review and READ “hollow bones” by matt elliott, and “preservation” by van wheeler.
i know most people think their boyfriend is the best, but my boyfriend is a former air-journey air-keyboardist, 3/4ths an acupuncturist, and a published writer. he can kind of play the shofar, and can drive stick, and knows which kind of jellybeans to buy.
and as for van, i don’t know anyone with sweeter ringlets, who can make such an iconic look from thrift store clothes, and who owns more saabs. plus he totally gets it about trader joe’s.
incidentally both men are great writers.
