Me, elsewhere: a link

To help you through those long, long days between my Friday post and next Tuesday’s (oh, how you miss me; it must be awful), here are two things in one place: a guest post I wrote on Barb Taub’s Tales from Null City and Barb’s review of The Divorce Diet. For her take alone on what the central character would have done if it had been set in various other decades it’s worth a click or two.

  1. I went; I read; I laughed. Don’t remember enough of the 2 years of Latin I took in high school to put that in Latin, so veni, vedi, vici it ain’t. :D

    In any case, I wanted to let you know that I’ve enjoyed reading your blog enough to buy your book _Open Mike_. Not sure when I will read it. Will definitely post a review on Amazon when I have done so.


    • If you’d remembered your Latin you’d have lost me, so maybe it’s just as well. My mother was fond of looking at inscriptions on buildings and saying, “Four years of high school Latin and I can’t even read an inscription on a building.” It wasn’t offered in my school, but with her as my shining example I can’t think I’d have taken it.

      Thanks for ordering the book. It’s one I’m fond of, but it’s a cynical little take on American politics that came out during Obama’s first election campaign, when the air was full of hope and change, and it didn’t do as well as I’d hoped. Of course, how many writers do you know who’d say, “Oh, yeah, that one did as well as I’d hoped.” We’re an unrealistic bunch, writers are, and it’s just as well or we’d give up in despair. Anyway, I hope you like it.
