That Was Fun…

Thanks to Elizabeth and Mediabistro for letting me behind the wheel here for the last few days, and to the vast majority of you readers who offered encouragement for most stories and accepted the occasional error–like the time I called Zadie Smith’s new novel One Beauty instead of On Beauty–with gentle good grace. (One anonymous heckler was ready to end my career over that typo, but I think I survived.) And extra-special thanks to New York reporter Boris Kachka for his patience in clarifying a story about Zadie’s backpedaling ways that I should have held on to a little longer before posting the first time.

I’ll be leaving tomorrow for Fall for the Book, where you can be sure I’ll ask Mark Winegardner about his latest Godfather deal, but I’ll file a few items when I can. Beyond that…well, you’re be hearing more on that front shortly.
