The point, of course, is that even under the banner of stuff white people like, the generalities can be more specific. For instance, in Boulder, Lander says, youll find the aging baby boomer with a secret shame of not enjoying a Native American chant. On tour, Lander usually reads a bit from his book, but he also goes into detail about how, exactly, he became Internet-famous through his blog and how it ended up scoring him two book contracts. Regardless of where youre from, his commentary operates on the thin line between snarky stereotypes and truthful social commentary.
Lander will be in town tonight at the Tattered Cover LoDo, 1628 16th Street, at 7:30 p.m. to sign and read from Whiter Shades of Pale. Admission is free; for more information, visit www.tatteredcover.com or call 303-426-1070.
