My brother Tod , in his weekly Las Vegas Mercury column, wrote about all the things he had to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. This one made me laugh:
Words of wisdom I am thankful for: From Toni Bentley’s transcendent memoir (note to publicists: please use that as a jacket quote for the paperback release) Surrender,
her tale of enlightenment via anal sex, "My ass, knowing only him,
knows only bliss. The penetration is deeper, more profound; it rides
the edge of sanity. The direct path through my bowels to God has become
clear." One day, when I’m older and more versed in midlife crises
nonfiction, I hope to avoid needing this kind of enlightenment.
