I’ll Drink What He’s Writing

Bookninja suggests — in a refutation of the Book Examiner’s pairings of booze and books — to match your tipple to the writer rather than their works.  For instance, “Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth by Margaret Atwood = Laphroaig whisky.”  (Sort of like asking the chef’s favorite vintage, rather than taking the suggestion the sommelier as to what you should imbibe with your dinner entrée ?) Whatever!  I’m in agreement.  Though woe is he who’s heavy into a Hemingway or Bukowski kick right about now.  [via Galleycat]
