Jami Attenberg's 'The Kept Man'

Since when do novels have their own YouTube videos? Call me Rip, but I've evidently just awakened from a 40-year nap to discover that not only is my beard outta line but that such as New York author Jami Attenberg, whose second novel, The Kept Man centers on the lonely life of Jarvis Miller, the wife of a famous painter who fell from a ladder and knocked himself into a coma some six years before the book begins, has a moody hipster video to accompany it. It's brilliant promotion but strangely unsettling all the same.
