The theory of the loser class

I'm looking at the galleys for my new book. It's a very exciting time. If you want a sense of what it will look like click here.

It's a book about Thorstein Veblen, Jerry Lewis, Theodor Adorno, R2-D2, binary code, Montreal, and Winnipeg.

It will be out April 1st...

thanks, ryan.
but are you sure you don't mean "awesorm"?

barlow said...

will it be out in time for the
ahl playoffs? manchester's tough
but a marlie moose series
would be a reason to visit
toronto. we can be pretty
fun hosts here. emphasize the
friendliness i swear by that.
i swear all the time even at work
but life is short be as friendly
as you can. maybe a special
launch in the greens at ricoh?
u should look at ahl sites more.
they're funny, they're interesting.
go marlies!

barlow,

The Moose rule all. With Ouellet and Flaherty in nets, and Jason King back on his game, there's no stopping the herd.

Mingus said...

I'm predicting the "angry young men" will do with your latest book what they've done with all the others: ignore it. Yawn.
