Vanity Fair's Elissa Schappell and John Waters are reading BUTTERFLY IN THE TYPEWRITER by Cory MacLauchlin

In Vanity Fair's July 25th Just My Type, Schappell writes: "...I’m escaping to a friend’s country estate with a companion, a book I must have been mad to miss this spring, Cory MacLauchlin’s A Butterfly in the Typewriter (Da Capo). ...Drawing on interviews with family and friends and a wealth of letters, MacLauchlin’s story of how O’Toole became Ignatius and how Confederacy of Dunces finally saw the light is heartbreaking."

John Waters mentioned reading the book in an interview.
