My Literary Crush of the Week


I have not been shy about my love of Alison Espach's The Adults. I called her book emo and then suggested that it go cut itself (that's high praise I swear). Alison is my very first Literary Crush of the Week and she's all the more deserving for it because of her slightly defunct blog.

Alison (I love how me and her have never met but that we're both on a first name basis) has the greatest blog post about the cheap SyFy movie 2010: Moby Dick :
I've been teaching fiction writing for about four years now, and one of the questions I'm most frequently asked is, "What is bad dialogue?" I never felt like I had an adequate answer until I watched 2010: Moby Dick.
This can only mean that Alison is a reader and watches SyFy Channel and knows bad dialogue when she hears it. I bet she even knows the difference between their, there, and they're. And. That. Is. Hot.

Try not to gawk.

Congratulations, Alison, on being my Literary Crush of the Week. Try not to feel too dirty.
