Does anyone else find it irritating that Steve Almond reviews his own book in the Weekly Dig? It’s not that he even reviews his work, its more the review itself. It’s so…..ugh, I don’t know. I liked My Life in Heavy Metal. I don’t deny that Almond has talent as a short story writer. It’s him trying to be so meta, reviewing his own book and criticizing it. It’s just irritating.
