Michael Scott Moore's "Too Much of Nothing"

Michael Scott Moore is the author of Too Much of Nothing, "a ghost story told from the droll point of view of Eric Sperling, a teenager who competes with his friend Tom for a girl and finds himself, to his utter surprise, killed in a fit of rage."

Moore does not have any specific actors in mind for these characters if the book is adapted for the big screen, but he does have some notion of the aural atmosphere of the adaptation:
Amazingly, I haven't given it any more thought than, "Something like the Billy Crudup film of Jesus' Son."

Not for any special reason except the kick-ass soundtrack -- I remember hearing that Denis Johnson got to pick the songs himself.
