This book is made up of non-fiction essays the author wrote for GQ, The New York Times Magazine, and other publications. Most of them are riveting. Some of them are a little boring. All of it is interesting, even when it’s boring in long stretches.
Some of my favorite essays can be read online for free, and as I’m just now discovering, he wrote all of them for GQ. But you should just read the whole damn book, as it’s a pleasure.
