Dori Monson Show Social Media Captain Jillian Raftery recommends "A Dirty Job" by Christopher Moore

Jillian writes ... I'm not usually in to trendy beach reads ... but this one came out a few years ago and it's offbeat, fun, hilarious, and really interesting. It's the kind of read that Seattleites who are hipsters but don't want to admit it will love. And people who love showers of cultural references that make you go 'A-HA!' will really enjoy it.
