Rudinoff's jacket was silver. Very shiny, sexy silver.
You know, it's an unsolicited aside on my part, but I hated Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. Like Cold Mountain, and like most of Eggers' literary clique, the author clearly tried way too hard to write something great, and it just came off as this grandstanding egofest. And it read way too much like a poor man's Douglas Coupland novel.
The fact that Eggers heavily embellished details of his family relationships to make himself look better also left a bad taste in my mouth.
Ah, Gomez. That's too bad. That's too bad you're one of those people.
LOL. We all have our preferences.

Yeah, I'm just about all for Eggers' altruism, but the book came out at the same time as Party of Five, remember that show? The one with that star from 'Lost.'
Party of Five had a similar premise of older orphaned children struggling to make it. The idea seemed to be the zeitgeist.
