"Ever wonder which intricate, elaborately-named drinks might be consumed if your favorite authors and characters wandered into a Starbucks? How many pumpkin lattes J.K. Rowling would drink? Or if Cormac McCarthy needed caffeine, which latte would be laconic enough? Look no further; Literary Starbucks explores such pressing matters with humor and erudition. Set over the course of a single day, and replete with puns and satirized literary styles, the three authors go darker, stronger, and more global than the blog in book format, including illustrations by acclaimed New Yorker cover artist and cartoonist Harry Bliss,"--Amazon.com.

Starting initially as a blog on tumblr, the creators of Literary Starbucks have compiled some of the posts from their blog as well as new content created specifically for the book into one epic day at a Starbucks during which fictional characters and authors come in to place orders from this ubiquitous American chain. Whether it's Chinua Achebe ordering a scone that crumbles and being told "things fall apart" or Harry Potter ordering a butterbeer latte because Dumbledore told him to and that guy seems trustworthy, there's plenty to delight and tickle the funny bones of lit nerds of all stripes.

3 mediocre writers extolling on the limited list of libations @*$, name dropping on high-school level literary authors, whom they imagine ordering at Starbucks' counter...Will YOU find this crappuchino on sale at your local Starbucks? For great vignettes on writing, refer to, for example, Palm of the Hand Stories by Kawabata?
