Benjamin Parzybok’s Couch is damned funny. Well, his novel Couch is anyway.

In fact, while I was editing this podcast, my family gathered around my computer to listen in. Yes, sometimes it can be strange days at the Day-Davidson household.

Ben and his wife, the artist Laura Moulton, are both quite fascinating people. You can check out Ben’s various art projects at Laura is behind the amazing — a bicycle-powered mobile library in Portland, Oregon, serving people who live outside.
