Harper just acquired this lusty janitor’s next short story collection but you can find his previous collection and debut novel at the links. Best anagram ever by Airship Daily.

YOU GUYS.

Laura (who works with HarperBooks) and Danny first met at an event/reading that Justin Taylor did for Everything Here Is the Best Thing Ever. They went on to date for a few years, and then last weekend Danny proposed! He got Laura’s grandmother’s ring from Laura’s dad, hid it in their well-loved copy of the book that started it all, and surprised her on Saturday morning. Sometimes “Hey, I marked a passage that I think you should read,” turns into “Will you marry me?” and I just can’t stand it.

The best part is obviously the proposal (books! literally bringing people together!) but the second best part is Laura telling this story to Justin’s editor down the hall. Of course you always think that a book is going to change someone’s life, but rarely does your book actually introduce your coworker to her future husband and hide the engagement ring!
