A excerpt from the short story, "Write What You Know"
"I only know about parent death and sluttiness. What else do I know? I know about the psychology of Jewish people who have assimilated, who dye their hair, who worry about bizarrely specific allergies".
"I know about liberal guilt and sexual guilt and taking liberties sexually, even though I haven't actually done any of these liberties I know about, except once something with a very small dildo, it hardly counts. I know about unrequited love, and once love that was required, but not for very long. I know about baseball – – it didn't take long to learn it. I know about relief pictures, and which guy switch it. When you guys know other guys, they know something I'm left out of. Guys know about towels – – towels are a big part of how they know each other, in the locker rooms where they only use each other's last names. The first name is what the girlfriend calls them, when she calls them. She's got a ponytail, she's got boots, she's got chlamydia. No, she doesn't got chlamydia. She's got a mom and a dad and a bathroom at home with a rag on a toilet seat. She's got a ponytail."
"I don't know about the rug on the toilet seat. Jewish people who have
assimilated rarely keep rugs there."
Witty, Weird, Wonderful.....a writer with finesse!
