Hellooooo Seattle —


June 16
Ed Park has been the editor of excellent book-review publications, like The Believer and the Voice Literary Supplement, for about five years. For a while now, everyone has been asking, When is Ed Park gonna write a goddamned novel? The wait is over, and the goddamned novel is called Personal Days. At Book Expo America, someone pitched it to me as "Nabokov writes an episode of The Office," and that's about right: It's packed with hilarious, razor-sharp observations about layoffs, mustaches, and interoffice romance.
