Of course, my favorite part is

Then Tim Lieder starts things off with his dizzyingly fascinating “Bop Kabala and Communist Jazz”. I cannot even begin to describe this short story, but fell in love with Lieder’s writing. I just cannot resist sentences like “Fifty-two dead in a church on a Sunday morning. Ed K. with his double life and me with my rude flesh, my sinful eyes and my debased hypocrisies.” or “The clouds took the sky and the wind tortured the chrome.” I am itching to check out more of Lieder’s writing after reading this gem!
not just because I'm an egotist who really loves the praise, but also because I kind of forgot writing those lines.

And I can't really describe the story either. I mean I try. I come up to my friends and go "I finally sold a pro-rate story" (with explanation of what that means) and they go "what's it about" and I go "well it's kind of about a guy who burns up his own church because he's bored...but there's also this narrator who is lying about everything. So it's really cool - I guess - I did this whole Kerouac thing which is ironic because I never liked On the Road and I tried to read other Kerouac books and I never liked them either but I got a lot of mileage out of..."

ANd then they get this glazed look on their faces and remind me again that part of the reason why I kept writing was to actually way what's on my mind without socially awkward exchanges like that.
