Mostly covering what I'm reading, but also a ton of other things thown in too.Opened all Night.
1) The Village Voice has named two books as their best of the year as part of their New York Best Of Awards. The nonfiction was awarded Goodby to All That: Writers on Loving and Leaving New York, which was edited by Sari Botton (which I read earlier thus year and really have come love months after reading it) and the fiction award went to 10:04 by Ben Lerner (which will be read after Judy Greer’s memoir). I glad that both of them won.
2) I just saw for reading of Never Can Say Goodbye: Writers on Their Unshakeable Love for New York that Nick Flynn (who I wanted to sign my Another Bullshit Night in Suck City) isn’t going to be reading, but the good news is that my new favorite author Philip Lopate is now on the roster, which means I get to hear him read the same piece that he read at the Brooklyn Book Festival, which makes everything better. Now I’m really looking forward to this.
