Just Leaves Me Speechless

The supertalented and supernice Stephen Elliott wrote a heartbreaking post on his blog on Sunday. Apparently his abusive father logged into Amazon and left a scathing review of Happy Baby. It's OK not to like a book, but this is clearly personally motivated. Although the review's since been removed, I still feel so bad that that happened. :o(

Happy Baby
is a brilliant and wonderful book that is raw, honest, heartbreaking and upsetting. While it's not an easy read, it is certainly a rewarding one. And Stephen is such a kind person. Go buy yourself a copy:

Barnes and Noble

I linked to the hardcover on Powells because it's on sale for only a dollar more than the trade paperback.
