New One Up at Austinist: Aphid Asses and David Sedaris

Here's a link to my Austinist column this week. I had the great joy of seeing David Sedaris in person last week. One thing I didn't get to work in was his list of recommended reading. Last time he was in town he recommended this wonderful, utterly depressing book called Random Family. So this time, I asked him to recommend more. Among others, he suggested No One Belongs Here More Than You, a short story collection by Miranda July, who did that cool movie-- I think it was called You and Me and Everyone We Know. I'm listening to the audio of the book now and it's really terrific. She's an actress/performance artist in addition to being a writer so she really has a great delivery. Check it out.
