From Nutsacks to Boners

Last night many theories were posited re: Sugar Frosted Nutsack:  It would be better read out loud!  It's about constructing your own reality!  The pedal hopper is a metaphor for the book: it's repetitive and tedious, yet still kind-of hilarious!  After reading sex tips by the gods out loud at the Taproom, I'm inclined to agree with at least the first theory.  Also, $1.75 beers at Free State.

Next up: Winter's Bone by Daniel Woodrell.  It's all Ozarky and meth-addled, and there may or may not be chainsaws.  We are an official stop on the Read Across Lawrence docket: Tuesday Sept. 25, 8:00 pm, Frank's North Star!

Other #RAL12 highlights: Winter's Bone at Nerd Nite; Winter's Bone Smackdown Trivia at the Bottleneck, an All-City Scavenger Hunt to find Jessup Dolly, Liberty Hall Film Church, and Woodrell himself will be in town swigging bourbon, skinning squirrels, and talking Winter's Bone at Liberty Hall (for free!) on Thursday Sept. 27.  Check out all the deets here.

  1. Nominating this for best identification of a PBR Bookclub litpick metaphor!

    Though "all Ozarky and meth-addled, and there may or may not be chainsaws" is a fabulous turn of phrase in its own right.
