It Involves Breaking Stuff

November 21, 2013 | by

Scott McClanahan’s readings are always highly memorable. As he wrote me about this, the video of his avowed final such reading ever, “I’m quitting. Yep, I’m just straight up quitting. It’s in Ohio which will make you want to quit anything—including LIFE. It involves breaking stuff.”

Apologies to Buckeye readers.

    McClanahan is a visionary — a truly amazing writer. Everyone should read “Hill William.”

    Scott McClanahan is amazing beyond words. Glad I was furloughed long enough to turn on CSPAN which gave way to BookTV which happened to be featuring him at a Book Festival.
