virtual book tour

Like the designers of the Rolls Royce, I’m always hesitant to change this site’s basic design — it’s difficult to improve upon perfection, both visual and functional. (My tongue is slowly boring a hole in my left cheek, by the way.)
But the new button in the right sidebar indicates my status as a stop on the Virtual Book Tour, the latest brainchild of my buddy Kevin Smokler (stage-managed by Susan Kaup). We’ll see how it works out, but on July 17, I’m supposed to do something on this site related to Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers (W.W. Norton), by Mary Roach. Just finished it yesterday.
In other news, I’d like to thank whichever government functionary approved the construction on I-20 east of Canton. The two hours and 29 minutes (I counted) it took me to travel 13 miles this afternoon — in an AC-less car, with temps reaching 110 in the front seat — provided much time for quiet contemplation of the universe’s great quandaries. Some swearing, too, but let’s focus on the quiet contemplation.

One thought on “virtual book tour”

  1. I’m interested to hear what you thought of it. I finished it in about two days’ worth of baths, and while I am still adamantly in favor of donating my body to science, I’ve become paranoid about dying a plane crash. Go figure.
