    Positively Fifth Street IS fantastic. Though I listened to the audio book during a commute one week instead of reading the book. So I guess I’m just assuming that the book is fantastic. Perhaps I should say that the audio book of Positively Fifth Street IS fantastic.Report

      Wait, somebody read that book out loud? With all the asides about strippers, tar heroine, murdering casino heirs and how hot the author’s wife is? I demand a copy of that audio tape. Like, right now.Report

        Hi Will. Thanks for your enthusiasm about the Chronicle piece. I hope you will checkout the book when it comes out next week. I the meantime, the very best version of PFS on tape is from Books on Tape, in which the complete book is read by actor Paul Michael. Cheers, JimReport

          Jim McManus –

          I’m incredibly surprised (and gratified) to find you hanging out in our comments section. For what it’s worth, I was huge of Positively Fifth Street, which inspired my roommates and I to spend an inordinate amount of time playing Texas Hold ‘Em in college. Thanks for the tip!

    Will and Jaybird: dat’s okay. Jennifer is much hotter than I deserve. The new history is dedicated to her, and she’s the star of the novel I’m working on, called The Winter Casino, in which her name is Vanessa.Report
