Here’s a great article about the competitive eating circuit by Mercantile favorite Jon Ronson.
A new anthology of Ronson’s screwy but wonderful journalism will be hitting the Mercantile’s shelves shortly. Watch for it, and feel free to grab a couple of his older titles from the stacks while you wait. We recommend Them, for starters.
Scripsi saw the man himself speak at Joseph Beth recently, and gave a glowing review.
