A Jello Horse Review in The Believer

Jim Ruland wrote an open letter to Matthew Simmons, which you can read in full at The Believer. It's a funny read that begins, "I am writing today to ask you a question about your book, which I read with great pleasure: what is it?" I also laughed at this line that addresses the second-person perspective: "When you say “you,” you mean “me” (meaning you), right?"

Ruland also points to "a fascinating problem for a protagonist: it’s his story, but the story doesn’t belong to him, and who hasn’t been there?"

A Jello Horse is available here, for $10 and shipping daily.
