We’ve been asking The Dust questions in the column Ask the Dust for six weeks now, but his identity remains murky.  Although he declined to be interviewed for this section, his personal assistant, Fabian, took the time to answer a few probing questions.  Take a look.


Meantime, here’s a quick overview of the subjects on which Dust has given us his two-cents’ worth of dust:


Small penises, Brooklyn hipsters, and the present tense


Celebrity blurbage, mawkishness, and sexual perversity online


Marital sex, Patterson envy, and 10 rules for writing


Christmas, books as gifts, and eggnog


Marital sex redux, fame, Ben Affleck as masturbatory fodder


Michael Vick, Tucker Carlson, and who is the bigger asshole


Thanks for reading, and remember, if you have a burning question, don’t keep it to yourself…Ask the Dust.

    I can’t believe it’s been six columns already. This is starting to feel like home. Thanks for welcoming us so warmly, TNB!

    Ask the Dust = my new favorite thing to read. I’m not in love…I’m in Dust.
