Waiting on Wednesday: Dec. 7

For the Waiting on Wednesday blog meme:

This just in from Lev Grossman: The best news of 2012 is that Mark Leyner is returning to fiction. His novels in the 1990s were brilliantly written paeans to celebrity narcissism -- "Et Tu, Babe," in which Leyner and his spouse get high on Lincoln's bottled morning breath; and "The Tetherballs of Bougainville," in which Leyner's father enters New Jersey's random execution program. Grossman reports that in March, Leyner returns with his first novel since 1998; it's titled "The Sugar-Frosted Nutsack," and Amazon claims it's about ancient gods who go after a New Jersey butcher. Count me in.
