A Must See — The Motel Life

When Julia and I were in Portland last month I was pleased to have had the opportunity to meet and spend a little time hanging out with Willy Vlautin, musician (Richmond Fontaine) and writer of the soon-to-be-out-as-a-movie novel, The Motel Life. He’s a fantastic writer, and The Motel Life is a favorite. Judging from the trailer (and one can never be sure with these things, I know), it looks like they’ve done it justice.

I know Willy has a new book set to come out in early 2014, I believe. In the meantime, definitely read The Motel Life, or either of his other books. He’s one of the good ones.
