Continuing Memoir Backlash, Plus Acme!

Entertainment Weekly has a genuinely stupefying rundown of the metastasizing memoir industry over the past ten years or so. Why don’t people just exorcise their personal demons and indulge their narcissism through autobiographical fiction, the way they used to?

And if you are a fan of Warner Brothers cartoons, which if you aren’t you should be, this site is like a tour of the happiest laughs of your childhood. It also inspired me to go find Ian Frazier’s hilarious story “Coyote Vs. Acme,” which I can’t recommend highly enough.

Oh yeah, and hooray for the rule of law.
