well. i’m very irritated. i DISTINCTLY remember seeing the meaning of
life posted here…it was something involving bagels…
hello. im a collitch student, and i have no idea how i managed to get
here after reading so many of your books…i would think that would be
on all the applications…HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU READ ALAN MENDELSOHN
THE BOY FROM MARS???
dooo dooo dodo dooo do (tuneless humming)
i am an extremely unworthy individual, i bow before you, do you really
please write more books, i will stand on street corners and distribute
them to passersby as i wait for the #22 clark bus.
have you been to 57th Street Books in chicago? i mention them because
not only are they one of the few bookstores that has voluntarily had
book such as young adult novel in stock, but they carry many other books
such as Well Wished which deserves to be plugged also, even though
d.m.p. didn’t write it. anyone passing through chicago should stop by
and SUPPORT YOUR INDEPENDENT BOOKSELLERS–they’re the only ones that
sell books by people like d.m.p.
d -- Was the post from rschroed received via the web, or was it, as I suspect, pressed into your hand by someone in the crowd at the Sunday Brooklyn Outdoor Kosher Computer Market, printed in tiny letters like the exterior of a Dr. Bronner's soap bottle, on a crumpled sheet of paper? This is the dark side of DMP book-culture. We don't know who rschroed is, and that may be for the best. We only hope that s/he will accept our good wishes, and not do us any harm.
