Literary Oufits, v. 2: Skippy Dies by Paul Murray    v. 1: Smut by Alan Bennett
What do you mean you haven’t read Skippy Dies yet? And here I am wearing sweaters to honor it.
Lately, I have encountered far too many people who have not read this novel, which, I would happily argue, is the best book published in the last decade—not to mention being beautifully designed by Leanne Shapton. 
Do something nice for yourself and read it! Your bookshelves will thank you, too.

Skippy Dies by Paul MurrayFaber & Faber, August 2010ISBN: 9780865479432. 661 pgs. 

I second the Skippy-Dies-is-the-best-read-it-now sentiment and wanted to share Tiffany’s amazing sweater with all of you. Also scheming on how to do some kind of literary (anti-)fashion show at HWBC.
