"Babbitt in a faded The Hold Steady t-shirt." You Can Make Him Like You gets Geoff Hyatt'd. And likes it. A lot.

You Can Make Him Like You has received some most kind words from local author and new BFF Geoff Hyatt and for that we are most appreciative. We are also buying drinks when next we meet, cool? Awesome. Big thanks bro.

You Can Make Him Like You is told in an engaging first-person that quietly denies the urgency and agony of feeling one’s identity becoming subsumed by a life as expected as a marketing campaign. It instead explores the bigger fear of not being “good” enough to even make it that far. Fortunately, there is love and fatherhood to bring our hero to something bigger than himself. There’s much to smile about in Tanzer’s latest. After all, if Keith can get it together to look for a sense of personal completion, then maybe there’s hope for all of us."

Excellent. Anybody who still invokes Babbitt is alright with me.
