Keep reading. It gets better.

In case you thought I gave up blogging for Lent, you would be incorrect. What I gave up for Lent... aw, never mind... it lasted all of nine hours.

The March issue of THE INDIE published an essay I wrote regarding the James Frey saga: "The Framing of James Frey?"

And in the fine tradition of James Frey, I also published a small work of fiction in THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY and NEW YORKER recently published a series of poems I wrote containing the words "b___ s___." Funny thing about James Frey, if you know him like I do, is that he never really wanted to be a writer. No. Seriously. He always wanted to work as a priest. Something he told me once after too much gin was how much he enjoyed listening to other people's crappy lives during confession. Now that would sell a million little books. Okay, so this entire last paragraph is completely exaggerated... okay... none of it's true. But you read this far so read my essay in the March issue of THE INDIE.

There's more... the March issue of THE BLOTTER will feature my poem "Postulates."
