Wake Up, Sir! -- Jonathan Ames

Possible two-book meeting with this and "Hyperbole and a Half" (which can be read in one sitting)? What do you guys think? Both are light reads. About "Wake Up, Sir!": Alan Blair is a young, loony writer with numerous problems of the mental, emotional, sexual, spiritual, and physical variety. He's very good at problems. But luckily for Alan, he has a personal valet named Jeeves, who does his best to sort things out for his troubled master. And Alan does find trouble wherever he goes. He embarks on a perilous and bizarre road journey, his destination being an artists colony in Saratoga Springs. There Alan encounters a gorgeous femme fatale who is in possession of the most spectacular nose in the history of noses. Such a nose can only lead to a wild disaster for someone like Alan, and Jeeves tries to help him, but...
Well, read the book and find out!

    Sorry to cancel so late, but weather related issues due to the storms last night have me cleaning up a basement. Hope to join the group at a future meet up. Enjoy.

    So sorry to cancel this late. My son caught a bug in preschool and now my husband is down too. Would be evil to leave the two of them alone... I am really sad about this since I have rather mixed feelings about the book and would be happy to hear other opinions. Hope to join you again in the fall....

    Unfortunately my volunteer event will go longer than I expected, so I have to skip :( Looking forward to the next one! -Jenny

      Nice. I am getting H and a Half from the library in a few weeks and can loan it out to someone else within that 3 week window if we can arrange a hand-off... it's a hot item right now.
