Macaulay Culkin's much maligned first novel, Junior, hasn't exactly turned the literary establishment onto its ear, but according to an eyewitness report sent into our New York-hardened sister site, Gawker, a recent reading at Barnes Noble brought out a large, motley crew of fanatics in the truest sense of the word. ("A deaf woman who brought up a blown up picture of him...left in tears and hugged a security staffer.") Perhaps this explains how Culkin may have managed to crack the top 5,000 of Amazon's bestseller chart, who helpfully suggest it be paired with Margo Jefferson's 160-page rumination on all things Neverlandian, On Michael Jackson.
