Back in Beige
I'm back from my three-day soujourn to the Governor's Conference on Women, where I helped host author signings with the likes of Rachel Ray, Rocco DiSpirito, Jenny McCarthy, and Madeleine Albright. I'm very, very tired, so you'll forgive me if this post is brief. A few things to check out while I soak in a hot tub:
- Narrative Magazine has a new short story by Stuart Dybek available online (You have to sign up to read it, but it is free).
- The Times' Paper Cut blog has a playlist by Todd Hasak-Lowy, who will be appearing at Vroman's on November 11 to discuss and sign his new book Captives.
- Everybody in the world has already linked to this, so I should too: Rolling Stone has a lengthy profile of the last days of David Foster Wallace.
- A few of us here at Vroman's are huge Mad Men fans (It's clearly Originality Day here at the bookstore), and awhile back we were talking about putting together a Mad Men display of books that seemed in a similar vein to the show. The first book that popped into my head was The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit, but the second was Revolutionary Road. Turns out I was right (via The Morning News).
