Here?s the diary of a man who in mid-life found himself uprooted and dumped into West Hollywood, an unfamiliar place not exactly known for stability. White explores his neighborhood ? ?queens: 6 percent; cranky 70-year-old Russians who give you the evil eye when you walk past: 2 percent; blonde girls with big, round, hard fakeys who think Jennifer Anniston just got lucky: 10 percent; miscellaneous cool kids, hustlers, and actual crazy people: 5 percent.?
White gets gigs as a freelance writer, goes to the grocery store where his Russian neighbors ask him questions because they think he?s from the old country; and encounters Sara Gilbert at the Laundromat, Leonard Maltin at the movies, and Ben Affleck driving a Rolls-Royce so ridiculously conspicuous he might as well be driving Chitty-Chitty, Bang-Bang.
What began as weekly diaries emailed to out-of-state family and friends evolved into a blog called ?Dave White Knows? and in 2003 became a monthly column in Instinct called ?Exile in Guyville.? Alyson Books now presents White?s blogs in expanded form with loads of new material that will be even more irritating to the Instinct readers who didn?t like his column. ?They requested more fashion and skin-care features in its place, which makes me kind of proud.?
