Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story
The all-American, yet uber-cool essayist, Chuck Klosterman, will release his next book, Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story, on June 28. So yeah, it'll be a while, but I suppose I can wait a little longer.
I don't really know what the book is about, but it'll probably be his usual pseudo-insightful-yet-funny essay schickt. I don't mean to sound down on Chuck, but even he admits that he writes with a formula which requires only a 30 second burst of insight, and then enough patience to sit down and drag that insight out for 20 pages. But whatever ... it's funny stuff, right? So it's all good ...
If you want to, for some really weird reason, pre-order the book, you can do it at Amazon.com.
I think that his list of 21 "high-quality albums" from the past three years was kind of lame/not taken seriously by Klosterman. I don't really like half of the albums at all, and I usually like a lot of stuff. Looking at the list got me down, and made me feel like a negative person, which I seriously hope is not true!
