On Gawker today, American author Tao Lin (whom they have in the past called "the most irritating person we've had to deal with") has written a post about getting banned from the NYU bookstore for shoplifting, which I guess is kind of what that guy is all about? He is after all the guy who wrote a (semi-autobiographical?) novella called Shoplifting from American Apparel, and brags about getting banned from, among other places, American Apparel and Whole Foods for shoplifting, so I guess his literary genre is ... petty crime? I've never read him. Although, judging from this post here today is one day I'm glad Gawker's commenters are kinda mean-spirited.
