Here's one of the best I've ever gotten re "The Best Seat In The House." I just received circuitously via my agent in New York because my email service on this site messed up again. In any case, this note goes on top of a big stack. I will now shamelessly reproduce it as a way to thank the very thoughtful Judy Finelli.

"Mr Rucker, you wrote one hell of a book. I loved it! I am a 61 year old quad and you had me in tears, laughing and crying in recognition. As far as I am concerned, you did the impossible -- you found the humor in the horror. Not only did you tell your own story, your own personal truth, but you told all of our stories. That's the neatest trick of all.

Gratefully, Judy Finelli, San Francisco Clown Conservatory"

Thank you, thank you, Ms. Finelli.

I say, if you want to be a clown, go see Judy.

I was just looking through your blog, and loved the comment by Judy Finelli. She hit the wonders of your book right on the head for so many of us. As I've said before, thanks for a great tale, and congrats on a great--and well deserved--review. For so many of us, you have captured beautifully our story. And hence, this book most surely deserves being referred to as a "classic".
