Convent comedy

If you find yourself around a copy of this week's New Yorker, make sure to read Paul Rudnick's hilarious account of writing a comic screenplay about nuns for Disney. (Spoiler alert: It eventually became Sister Act.) The guy has never been funnier. His tell-all piece reads like Sedaris in his prime, with a showbiz edge, or like the best work of This American Life veteran David Rakoff. Just excellent stuff, from start to finish.

From what you said earlier, seems like you liked it, eh? Struck me as just your kind of thing.
