Rewhorin'

I got my copy of the Field-Tested Books book in the mail today, and it's a purty thing. I know I've mentioned this before, but I'll do it again for no reason than I'd like to see a couple of you put money to a good cause:

If you're absolutely dying to have something I contributed to on your bookshelf, I have two essays in Field-Tested Books that are okay. More importantly, there's also essays by a ton of people better than me, including James Finn Garner, Will Leitch, Joe Meno, Lee Klein, Terry Teachout, Todd Dills, Ben Greenman, Maud Newton, Whitney Pastorek, Andrei Codrescu, Jessa Crispin, Jonathan Messinger, Heidi Moorman, Jim DeRogatis, Daniel Radosh, David Rees, and the internet's own Claire "Zulkey" Zulkey.

But even more importantly than that, a heap of the mayonnaise raised from sales of this book will go to First Book, a nonprofit outfit that does the very fine work of buying new books for low-income families. So if you go here and buy Field-Tested Books, you'll be doing more than stroking my pathetic ego; you'll be bringing good into the world. And that's something you can put on your heavenly resume.

I'm not just saying this to make you feel better, but:
Jim DeRogatis is not better than you in any respect whatsoever.
