Sherman: A So-Informal-That-Clothing-Is-Optional Introduction

I've been actively editing the manuscript over the last several weeks, gutting and reconstructing several chapters that I had written months earlier but still had a sliver of some ineffable quality that I couldn't quite put my finger on.
