Hello. Ben here.
As some of you may know, there are several celebrities that I resemble strongly. They are, in order of comments recieved from strangers: Dana Carvey. Emilio Estevez, and Harry Anderson.
However, there is one individual that I resemble more than all three of these combined. Marvel as I make my first use of the “more” feature…
Holy shit! Looking at the UK cover to Susan Cooper’s young adult novel “King of Shadows” is like staring into a goddam mirror (a mirror that is out-of-doors and facing a large, fog-enshrouded barn-like building). According to wikipedia, King of Shadows tells the tale of Nat Field, a young American who goes back in time to Shakespearean England of 1599.
But screw that. Since my image is used on the book’s cover, I can pretend the book is about anything I want it to be. Therefore, King of Shadows tells the tale of Awesome Ben, a young American who goes back in time to Nixonian America of 1972. There, he spends his time listening to Sabbath, playing pinball, and getting to third base with a different girl every week.
Man, that book sounds great. I wish I was Awesome Ben. Some day, God willing, I will be.
