I tune in to NPR all the time. Who is he, what does he discuss? I'll make a point to find him.

He's an author. He's absolutely hilarious... as in I read his stories out loud to my friends hilarious. One of his books is "Me Talk Pretty One Day." He writes short stories.

Let me know if you find him. You'll have to let me know what you think.

I'm going to grab my book and see if I can find an excerpt to post.

Okay. Here's a paragraph from a story called "The Youth in Asia."

A week after putting her to sleep, I received Neil's ashes in a forest green can. She'd never expressed any great interest in the outdoors, so I scattered her remains on the carpet and then vacuumed her back up. The cat's death struck me as the end of an era. It was, of course, the end of her era, but with the death of a pet there's always that urge to string black crepe over an entire ten- or twenty-year period. The end of my safe college life, the last of my thirty inch waist, my faltering relationship with my first real boyfriend: I cried for it all and wondered why so few songs were written about cats.
