NPR has an interview from this weekends Sunday show interviewing Chris Elliott on Shroud of the Thwacker. Unless I missed it, they didn't bring up The Boilerplate Controversy. Instead they lobbed a nice big softball, probably in deference to his dad of long radio fame. So Shroud gets "the NPR bump", that holy grail of book writers everywhere-- well, no, I guess having Oprah command her legions to read your book is still better--still, a huge chunk of the reading populus now know about it. Which we here at Mercury think is in large part thanks to the controversy. At any rate, we want the book to do well because now Paul Guinan is irrevocably tied to it. And we still think Elliott is funny, if not a particularly canny source user. Go listen.
