In the time honored tradition of trashing books I haven’t read, I’d like to call attention to Molly Ringwald’s first short story collection, When It Happens To You. According to the NYT today, her writing skills are on par with her acting ability. Sure, she’s an easy target. Everyone from St. Elmo’s Fire is an easy target. Was Ringwald even in St. Elmo’s Fire? Who really gives a fuck. All of those movies suck and are particularly offensive to me because they are my gen and it shames me. Where are the Easy Riders? Where are the Days of Heaven? None of the actors went on to have careers of any note with the exception of James Spader and Rob Lowe! Am I missing anyone? I heard that Andrew McCarthy is writing a memoir. I hope it’s not about his life. For my money, I would like to read the short stories of Mickey Rourke, Daniel Day Louis, and Winona Ryder.
What actor’s short stories would you most like to read?
