Got my new issue of the BELIEVER magazine in the mail today. It smells weird! Like the ink smells really strong. I feel woozy! But the contents look good. It seems "Blog" Buddy Amanda Stern has interviewed Laurie Anderson (pictured), so that is exciting. And you know how Nick Hornby always tells you about which books he has read recently? This time he has read TWO books by "Blog" Buddy Megan Abbott. He finds her work "psychologically subtle, gripping, and brave." True! My column is in there as usual. You can read a chunk of it on the "web" site - just a chunk! I read the chunk of my column that appears on the "web" site and thought, you know, it works as a chunk. Maybe a chunk is plenty. Chunk!
