Readers are less and less seen as mere non-writers, the subhuman other or flawed derivative of the author; the lack of a pen is no longer a shameful mark of secondary status but a positively enabling space, just as within every writer can be seen to lurk, as a repressed but contaminating antithesis, a reader.

It totally sounds like an advice book, … but there’s not a shred of advice in the entire book, which is good for any of your readers. It’s a novel. It’s a humor book. It’s sort of a what-if scenario of what would happen if you took a B-movie actor, meaning me — I take the lead role in the book — and put him into a big Hollywood movie.
