Do you all remember Ryan from The Office? You know the on-again, off-again boyfriend of Kelly Kapoor. Well, Ryan, err, B. J. Novak, has a new book out, One More Thing.
I happened across a reading of one of these little gems, "Julie and the Warlord," on This American Life. I found it funny and quirky, which left me more than a little intrigued as to what else Mr. Novak has up his sleeve. As someone who has, in recent years, gained an appreciation for the short story, I happily added this to my list of collections to read. You can listen to the story over at This American Life, Episode 518: "Except For That One Thing" Act One.
If you need a further tease, check out the book trailer featuring a reunion of sorts between Ryan and Kelly.
