Swipe on the Tinders of Famous Literary Characters

1. Holden Caufield


Holden Caulfield Tinder


Not into phonies. 6”2, if that matters. Smoker. Drinker. I’m probably the biggest sex maniac you ever saw, but recovering from an operation on my clavichord.


2. Golem


Golem Tinder


Looking for a ring. Something to call precious.



3. Patrick Bateman


Patrick Bateman Tinder


Return some videotapes and chill?


About Huey Lewis and the News: Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in ’83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He’s been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor.

5. Brutus

There will be no fault in our stars…as long as you aren’t a Virgo or a Pisces.

I may not be your first, but I will be your last.
