Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Moleskinny

October 23, 2007

I love/hate it when I’m late to pick up on a joke.

I was taken with Dave Eggers’ collection of short stories, and especially appreciated the packaging. But my new obsession is illuminating that experience after the fact. I was moving books on the shelf the other day when I grabbed it, suddenly realizing that it is the same size, color, and texture as the noble journal. And as I remember now, my used copy came with an orange paper band wrapping the cover, just like a real Moleskine.

So a big tip o’ the beverage to uber-writer and publisher Dave Eggers: you’re even cooler and funnier than I realized. Either that, or we’re both huge geeks.
