The Art of the Slap


” Every syllable uttered by Scharpling and Wurster is worthy of your egregious praise. Speaking as a native Philadelphian, I take particular delight in Philly Boy Roy, the living embodiment of Philadelphia provincialism. Finally, my heart is given voice!” —Paul F. Tompkins

” I have become an obsessive Scharpling and Wurster fan. Sadly, I find myself more invested in the trials and tribulations of their characters than those of most people in my real life!” —Ben Gibbard, Death Cab for Cutie
