It seems that the Old Hag (aka Lizzie Skurnick, for you whippersnappers) has kicked off Jezebel’s new column Fine Lines on beloved* children’s and YA titles with "Are You There, Crazy Psychic Muse? It’s Me, Lois Duncan." The result is fabulous, but not for the faint-hearted or overly reverent.
Oh, oh, oh and Literaticat has interviewed Daniel Pinkwater.
Thank you Internets for not disappointing me upon the return to the land of wireless.
*Presumably for a couple different values of beloved, including "it seemed like a good idea at the time."
