Today the book Reality Matters hits store shelves, and I want each and every one of you to buy it. The volume is an anthology about reality television, and not only has it been edited by my friend Anna David, but it also features the contributions of such authors as Toby Young (Top Chef), James Frey (A Million Little Pieces), Neil Strauss (The Game), Stacey Grenrock Woods (The Daily Show), Jerry Stahl (Permanent Midnight), Mark Lisanti (Defamer, Movieline), and even yours truly (pause for applause and gentle adulation). Yes, this is the first time my writing has been published in a book, and I’m quite excited, especially since I’m in such esteemed company.
Clearly, if you want to support me, my friend Anna, and America in general, you’ll do the right thing and buy this wonderful book.
Additionally, there is a whole slate of events tied in with the release of Reality Matters. California readers of this blog should take note. On Wednesday, April 21st, I will be taking part in a book reading for Reality Matters at the Barnes & Noble at The Grove (on 3rd and Fairfax). The following week, I’ll be up in San Francisco on Thursday, April 29th to do it all over again at the Borders in Union Square (400 Post St.). Both events start at 7 PM. This is my very first book reading (at least since perhaps a 7th grade recital of my epic story, “The Pocket Watch”), and as such, I am very excited. Come on by and check it out!

  1. I can’t wait to hear about the awkwardness that ensues from the book reading. Am predicting a wardrobe malfunction.
    If we wait until the audio book comes out, can we listen to you narrating?

  2. Ok, so I’m not considered a social outcast I’ve ordered “Reality Matters”.
    Plus copies of “Cook This, Not That” and “Eat This, Not That”.
    My summer reading list grows.

  3. Congrats on the publishing. Wish I lived in Cali to attend this epic reading. Does a reading mean you LITERALLY read from the book? All this makes me think of are my kindergarten through fourth grade teachers. Which isn’t a bad memory, but I also don’t know if you’ll make unique voices for each character like they did. But I recommend it.

  4. sluggerbun: Ben writes about Big Brother.
    Check here about Ben and the other authors in the book.
    I still think Ben should do a reading at the Barnes & Noble (next door to Trader Joe’s) here in Chula Vista! 🙂
    It’s a fun book!
