on sale today: awesomeness

  • About the author EB

I just wrote a really great post about how Kevin Wilson’s Tunneling to the Center of the Earth goes on sale today, and how it’s one of my favorite books this year. I also mentioned how Kevin’s writing has been compared to that of Aimee Bender, George Saunders, Kelly Link, and Kevin Brockmeier, and how his stories feature such things as a Scrabble tile factory, spontaneous combustion, stand-in grandparents, Mortal Kombat and gayness, and cradle-robbing cheerleaders. But the most important thing I mentioned was this:

On April 9th in Nashville, Kevin will be reading at Davis-Kidd just a few short hours after Miley Cyrus makes an appearance there.

Anyway, that post got lost. So now you have this one.
