Coudal Partners are a fine bunch of fellows and fellowettes. Each year, they present "Field-Tested Books", a series of short pieces by big-shot literary types wherein they describe the experience of reading a particular book in a particular place. I am honored to say that this year, alongside bigshots like Daniel Radosh, George Saunders, Jonathan Eig, Kevin Guilfoyle, James Finn Garner, Francis Heaney, Whitney Pastorek, Tobias Seaman, and others*, I am one of the participants. The site can be found here; I encourage you to check out all the excellent entries, and read throughout the week (there'll be new updates each day through Friday), before moving on to the important part, which is to say, my entry.

*: One of whom, in a terrifying leap forward of our respective destinies, is none other than James Lileks. It's only a matter of time until pistols at dawn.
