I'm disgusted!

Apparently Lexus (yes the car) has a new literary series, which starts with a collaboratively written story about yuppies driving across country in their Lexus. you can read about it on Galley Cat. The link to Arthur Phillips's (The Egyptologist, Prague, and Jeopardy Champ) 1st chapter is on that page if you really want to read it. Other authors you can start hating now include Curtis Sittenfeld and Jane Smiley.

Seriously, how much money do these authors need to completely sell out like this? It's kinda gross, and this is from someone who finds the Of Montreal song on the Outback commercial amusing.
