- The art of longhand penmanship is dying. Somehow, I feel we should hold Margaret Atwood responsible.
- And the WaPo Magazine Reader column looks at the post-Plimpton Paris Review. The verdict? It’s better than ever.
- Naomi Novik looks so cute in the photo accompanying this NYT piece about her Jacksonian good fortune with the Temeraire books. (Could have done without the idiotic 40-Year-Old Virgin reference though: puh-leeze!)
- The Boston Globe’s New Wave Fabulist story has yielded lots of comments, and now comes my favorite definition of NWF ever from George at Bookninja: That’s when you get your hair spiked so high and so shiny with gel that people walking past you in the street can’t help but grip their ears and scream “FABULOUS!”
- The FABULOUS Bennett Madison gives an update on the future of Lulu Dark and his next novel, The Blonde of the Joke, due out in 2008. There’s excerpty goodness.
- Whoopsie. When posting is too aggressive: a Booker story. Possibly apocryphal?
- Midori Snyder on the Salon Fantastique anthology.
- Matt Cheney’s Q&A about his story "Blood" at One Story.
- William Gibson runs Jack Womack’s genius (as usual!) comments on the (possible) title of his new novel Spook Country.
1 thought on “Wednesday Hangovers”
“After having a lukewarm reaction to the film version of “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World” in 2003, Ms. Novik read the original Patrick O’Brian book. Two weeks later she had finished all 20 books in his Aubrey-Maturin series.”
Damn. And I thought I ploughed through those in a hurry…
