If only someone like that were reading in a beautiful, wood-laden bookstore such as Books & Books tonight, and the book he was reading from, How It Ended, was composed of short stories he'd been writing for more than 20 years and that A.O. Scott of the New York Times compared to the short fiction of Ernest Hemingway. If that were true, you would get off the couch and go to hear it, wouldn't you? Wouldn't you?
