"Juliet, Naked" Rushed to Uncover

Who woulda thunk Dan Brown has such a sweeping effect on book deliverance?

Never read one of his, uhmmmm, lit works. I may have to buy one just to make sure the Dan Brown publishing engine keeps chugging along, thus delivering to us books we really want to read.

P.S., Here's Heather Brown's take on the book. Damn!??@?!?@ I'd love to be part of that club that gets to read Hornby's books so much earlier. How much more hould I be groveling Mr. Riverhead Books? I mean, what with having purchased all of Aleksandar Hemon in the past 4-5 years, I figure I'm supporting you folks enough to throw me an early Hornby bone?

Notice anything?
Yep, that's right! Mr. Hornby is dissing (is that word still in the vogue?) Marah's home town of Philly.
