Die-hard Red Sox fan and booster of the arts Dave Douillette recently found his mother Ruth’s copy of When Pigs Fly and intends to bring it with him to college, where he hopes it will fulfill his lit requirement. “This is an awesome book,” the sophomore said, noting the tome’s heft and bright colors. “I definitely might read it.”
Mr. Douillette reportedly asked his mother what was in it for him if he allowed her to take his picture with the celebrated book. Ms. Douillette denied coercing her son. Meanwhile, New Mexico author Bob Sanchez brushed aside allegations that he paid in the low single figures for the prized endorsement. “All I promised was a link back to Ruth’s great blog,” he insisted.
