Well reading and lying, but eventually just reading, the lying just gets out of control once you break out your Green Day poetry.
A spectacular story by David Amsden about his awkward High School years, and how Jay McInerney is to thank for all the more-awkward moments that involved the opposite sex:
By late spring, however, the one thing I had gleaned for certain about the girl was that she liked to read—an unfortunate discovery.
Regardless, I did the only thing that made sense; I adopted a completely false personality, approached the girl as she was waiting for her bus on the last day of school, and asked what she was up to over the summer.
“Cause there’s, like, this used bookstore I love,” I lied.
If you haven’t read Story of my Life and enjoyed Bright Lights, Big City (or any of the other 80′s “Literary Brat Pack”—McInerney, Ellis, Janowitz, and Lindquist) you should start today, who knows what it will bring to your life.
