Good thing that whole eBay auction ploy worked out! Yeah, so I'm a few months late on this post, but... after devouring the first couple hundred pages of Chris Adrian's The Children's Hospital, I've decided that reading it is pretty much all I want to do until I'm done. Nina knew what was up back in March. And since signings around town have been slowing down a bit now that summer is in full swing, I figured I'd interrupt our normal broadcast of readings alerts and leave you with a simple recommendation. The only downside so far? The hardcopy weighs in at 600 pages, which means I can no longer fit my lunch, a water bottle, a sweater, two magazines, and assorted random shit in my pathetic shoulder bag anymore. It's The Children's Hospital or nothing. Totally worth it.
