David Cross…We Still Heart You

We’re big fans of Arrested Development here in the office, so it’s no surprise that we’re extremely excited about David Cross’ (aka Tobias Fünke) first book: I Drink for a Reason.

Ok ok–we know that Cross is clearly not thrilled to be Jewish (although he was born Jewish, he is an atheist)…but like it or not, he can’t shake us. From Tabletmag:

…with chapters titled “Ask a Rabbi!” and “Other Ways in Which Jews Can Utilize Current Technology to Get around God’s Strict Laws for the Sabbath.” Cross, an avowed Jew-cum-atheist, calls “Orthodox Jews . . . the most annoying people, as a group, that walk this earth,” and their beliefs “utter nonsense.” He denies charges of “self-loathing,” though.

More can be found from Tablet here and here.
