Some of the parts

Last week I read with Bryan Charles at KGB. Bryan read from his memoir, There's a Road to Everywhere Except Where You Came From (his novel is called Grab On to Me Tightly As If I Knew the Way—consistency in titling!).

There's a good, funny excerpt up at HTML Giant—here is a taste!

I went to Century 21 and bought several packs of new T-shirts. Every day I brought one or two to work with me in a laptop carrying case. I’d stop at various restrooms on my lunchtime walks—the Ranch 1 on Water Street was my favorite. I’d change into a new T-shirt and stuff the soiled one in my bag. Depending on the day I might need to change again in the afternoon. I used the restroom of the Au Bon Pain in the building lobby for this purpose. Before long all my T-shirts had huge yellow-brown stains under the arms and coffee-colored drip marks on the sides.
