We're back. And what did we bring you? The new edition of This Book Will Change Your Life. Nice, right?

We travel, we read, we're back. And we have two entries for this edition of This Book Will Change Your Life. First, Fast Forward >>Confessions of a Porn Screenwriter by Eric Spitznagel. Now we should begin by saying that it is most definitely true that we are big fans of the Spitznagel, hence way biased, but Fast Forward is a great read regardless, all breezy and Spitznagellian, which is to say, funny, crude and sweaty, sort of furry and always verging on nudity. And second, Big World by Mary Miller. As we read these stories, or more accurately, as we vacuumed them down, we were initially thinking, Faulkneresque, well, maybe, how about Carveresque, for sure, but then we thought, whatever, this collection is just fucking great, and quite Milleresque, a descriptor we expect we will be hearing more and more as time goes by.
