Enjoyed lunch with the impossibly chic Anne Landsman, whose novel The Rowing Lesson (Soho Press) I'm publicizing. It's not out 'til November, but already people are clamoring for it, and who am I to resist such an impulse? She's reading at PAGE on October 4th and at Sunday Salon on the 21st. Today we went to BBar and had a million laughs and made big plans, as always... Dallas Hudgens, another one of my clients, has a new novel, Season of Gene (Scribner) just out this week and he's on tour. Kirkus calls it "a nourishing slice of Americana, expletives and all," to which I say, damn straight! Babies like it too... Tomorrow night in New York is the 1000Stories launch party at Goethe-Institut New York and I can't wait to talk politics, cultural identity and experimental filmmaking with likeminds, and dance my little heart out to DJ Maxx Klaxon, who always plays my favorite songs... I was quite surprised and flattered to be nominated and voted vice chair of the board of Girls Write Now at our meeting tonight. Save the date for GWN's 10th anniversary party on October 18th... Right now I'm so exhausted I can barely keep my eyes open, and yet I have to work. Good thing I'll have a while to sleep on the plane on Friday, when I head to Japan for ten days or so. I've lined up the perfect housesitter for Maison de Lux but no guestblogger for Lux Lotus. Everyone's so busy these days, and I didn't think you'd mind. XO.
