Weekend Table-Talk for May 23–25, 2008
I. That title is to fool myself into not blogging this weekend!
II. Via Sarah, an article on fellow Buffalo native Lawrence Block—author of the Scudder and Rhodenbarr (and Keller and Chip Harrison!) novels (among others), screenwriter for Wong Kar-wai's My Blueberry Nights, and one of many good reasons to read the Hard Case Crime line.
III. The Morning News hails The New-York Ghost for "Online Excellence"?!:
"By offering each issue through email only, what the Ghost has managed to do—unlike many of its web compatriots—is turn the expectation of content into the thrill of finding a new issue in your inbox."
IV. The Daily Mail says of Personal Days: “Having a character called ‘K’ acknowledges the Kafkaesque nature of the book–but it’s a lot more fun than Franz ever was.”
V. I gotta go return a library book!
UPDATE (Via Weekend Stubble): Contra Heinlein!
