Even though I never brush it and I haven't had it cut in ages, my hair is really shiny today, probably because I spent half the holiday weekend catching up on beauty sleep (which half? the second half). I've been working overtime lately but all in good service to excellent things-- currently publicizing: FREE FOOD FOR MILLIONAIRES by Min Jin Lee, THROW LIKE A GIRL by Jean Thompson, Barnes & Noble's UPSTAIRS AT THE SQUARE. Check 'em out. Meanwhile, Book Expo America (BEA), the biggest conference in publishing is taking place this weekend and so I'm sorting through party invitations and making appointments to meet up with clients, friends, et al. I'll be covering the most artistic, political and stylish aspects of the festivities here at Lux Lotus just like last year so expect a full report. 'Til then, enjoy the silence. Before I go... in this week's edition of The Smart Set, my weekly round-up of all that is haute and happening in New York for MaudNewton.com: the soundtrack to my soundtrack.
