I'm reading that book right now. It's excellent, though I'm identifying with it to an uncomfortable extent. In fact, the main character and I are even the same age (at least at the beginning of the book). One different thing--I'm a fanatical follower of the Redskins, which I suppose would make Exley and I arch-rivals, as he loves the Giants.

Damn I hadn't thought about Exley in a long time, and you made me pull it down off the shelf. The first two paragraphs of that book are nearly perfect: the first for including the phrase "foodless, nearly heroic drinking," and the second for ending with the sentence "That the fear of death still owns me is, in its way, a beginning."


Love your commentary, written and TV, but how can you talk about sexual harassment and violence against women with a straight face when you work for Hugh Heffner?

Otherwise: I am a Wonkette emerita, political junkie, self-hating journalist and occasional grown-up: I used to do this. And then this. I appear with some regularity on The Rachel Maddow Show; most recent clips of these segments are here, and my 2008 talking head jag is here. Back in the day, I did this, and this, and this. I live in Washington, DC with an adorable husband and three very understanding pets. I am the Washington Correspondent for GQ Magazine.
