Ben Eats His Book!



Ok, maybe he wont eat the whole book, but it is a starts. In a salute to Blake Butler, Ben has eaten a page of Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine.

This is the one year anniversary month of Most Likely and it is on sale until Sept 30th for just $10.

I have also collected some of my favorite quotes about Ben's book from the last year.

"Ben Tanzer's second novel, Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine, is a glorious amalgam of dating, dysfunctional families, and pop culture. The book explores nascent relationships, complete with their insecurities, possibilities, hurdles and wonders." - Largehearted Boy

"Most Likely You Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine is an honest, funny book whose depiction of dating angst in the nineties will ring true for those of us who were there, and likely win plenty of new converts for this talented Chicago author." - Matt Staggs (Enter The Octopus)

"Rarely do I run across a writer who makes me glad I can feel so deeply the words in a book. You are probably one of the rarest of gems and I hope more readers will tune into your books." - J. Kaye (J. Kaye's Book Blog)

"It’s a sweet look at life in the big city." - Baby Got Books

"Most Likely You Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine is a brilliant, clever, humorous, edgy, and raw portrayal of urban single life. Deftly written, it will capture your attention from the first page and leave you shaking your head in awe until the end." - Kelly Moran Author & Reviewer

"Neither seems like a great start to a great relationship, but this isn't a story about great relationships. It's a story about real ones." - Veronica Bond (Gapers Block)

"Tanzer's writing style reflected the deeper layers of meaning in Most Likely, with longer expressions of intellectual and emotional intimacy." - Jeremy Gershfeld

"He is a very nice man. His head maybe isn't on straight. Neither is mine." - Everyday Yeah

this guy is weak. he barely ate any of his book. he should definitely eat more of his book. not to say that it is a bad novel because i haven't read it, but the title "Ben Eats His Book!" for this link is misleading therefore more eating of the book would be appreciated. thanks!

For the record, I am weak, and there should be no confusion about that. That said, I am definitely open to eating more of the book, when (1) I know you have purchased a copy, because that would make for some excellent incentive and (2) I have fully digested the first page, which my doctor says should be any day now.
