What Took Him So Long?

At just 25, he’s the youngest writer ever for Saturday Night Live, he already has an archive of pieces on the New Yorker Web site and has published two books of his short works. Now, Simon Rich has published a full-length novel, which was reviewed in the NYT BR (a bit lukewarmly, although the reviewer said that he’s pretty sure he’d love it if he were still in the 8th grade). Today, it gets a much stronger review in the daily NYT (featuring an author photo that makes Rich look even younger than his book’s 13-year-old protagonist).

Plus, how many authors get to shoot their book trailers on the set of SNL?
