literary losers

Mark Sarvas writes on literary losers for Book Forum.

Home Land by Sam Lipsyte
It’s hard to think of a more complete reprobate than Lewis “Teabag” Miner, whose days consist of devouring drugs, scouring the Internet for leg-warmer porn, and churning out embittered, unprintable dispatches for his high school newsletter. And still, strangely, we ache for him.

That reminds me that Sam Lipsyte has a new book coming out early next year. See him read from The Ask here.

Update: ...and a follow-up from Vroman's.
