The Yes List: Adam Wilson's Laugh-Out-Loud Literary Debut

Adam Wilson's first novel, Flatscreen, from Harper Perennial $15), follows Eli Schwartz, an Apatow-style man-child who lives with his mom, smokes pot, pines for the Hispanic girl who parks cars at his synagogue, and dreams of hosting a show on the Food Network. When he meets Seymour J. Kahn, a wheelchair-bound ex–TV actor (he specialized in "crappy shows viewed by idiots"), hilarity ensues. Out February 21.
