The romance of these kinds of books resonates with me. By romance, I mean more than a love story. These writers so often take on the idea of how a man conducts his life—usually a man who believes in something when everyone else is persecuting him for it. While he may have failed thousands of times, he has a vision of something tangible. In those circumstances, the great ones rise. And that, to me, is a romantic notion. That's what I like. I like the guys who forge ahead.
Thank You for Smoking is based on the novel by Christopher Buckley.
