Eric Bogosian, PERFORATED HEART, New York, Simon & Schuster, 2009, 271 pages.
Been writing like a demon. Four stories in the last two weeks. I am boiling and churning with ideas. I am a juggernaut, sparks fly from my wheels. I can't write fast enough. And the guy from the first magazine wants more. Also the guy from The New Yorker called and was all enthusiastic and chatty. Said he wants to see what else I've got. Can't promise anything. I don't care. I don't even read The New Yorker.
