Hey, look over there!

2006-10-09T07:25:14-07:00

I'm pulling up my typepad stakes and setting up shop with the fabulous Wordpress at the most convenient web address ever, http://www.pinkyspaperhaus.com. Things at the new house are still getting organized, it's true. The library hasn't been built yet and...



advance warning

2006-10-06T10:29:25-07:00

So here's the thing. I've been working on moving this blog to another blogging platform. It was almost done, but something in the final step has gotten all mucky. If you're seeing this, you either come directly to my typepad...



Guess that book

From today's New York Times:

At its heart, “TITLE REDACTED” is a book about a marriage and the journey through grief that a widow [name redacted] makes after the death of her husband, [name redacted], also a rock star of the book world. 

You know this book, right? The title, author and link after the jump.

The book is Lisey's Story by Stephen King.




Miss Otis Regrets

2006-10-03T06:52:44-07:00

Due to a combination of school responsibilities and some possibly ill-timed structural blog shenanigans, I am quiet. I will be, for a short while, quiet. If you have something to say about You Remind Me of Me by Dan Chaon,...



On the yellow brick MFA road

2006-09-27T03:26:00-07:00

Last night was Readings in Contemporary Fiction. This is my favorite grad school class, because we get to read new(ish) books and then talk about them as writers. Our professor* treats us like we're smart people who are thoughtful about...

In honor of Banned Books Week, Tod Goldberg takes on book-banning Christians.

The Happy Booker rubs shoulders with Lisa Fugard, Elizabeth Kostova, Jim Lehrer and more as DC gears up for the PEN/Faulkner Gala.

In LA tonight, Beck will be playing a just-announced show at Element.

Tomorrow in Chicago, Bookslut's reading series will feature onetime Pinky guest Ned Vizzini, Brian Evensen and  Cristina Henriquez.

And here in Pittsburgh, homework marches on. Slowly.




When bookshelf means book shelf

2006-09-25T03:30:00-07:00

I don't know if this will merit the uber-urban LuxLotus windowlicker, but the bookshelves-from-books do look kind of awesome to me.



To boldly go where no auction has gone before

2006-09-24T08:18:55-07:00

On October 5-8, venerable auction house Christie's gets its hands dirty with Hollywood-style spacedust with 40 Years of Star Trek stuff. From a redshirt outfit from the original series to tables from Quark's bar, bad Kirk movie outfits (no hairpiece,...



Mr. President - Mr. Roper

2006-09-23T09:49:00-07:00

I swear, this is homework. It's the 1964 version of The Killers, starring Lee Marvin, Angie Dickinson and John Cassavetes... and these two guys as the villans. I had no idea it was only one small step from the White...



The Black Dahlia

2006-09-22T19:39:24-07:00

It makes sense that David Denby, who writes film reviews for The New Yorker, is himself a New Yorker. But a clichéd New Yorker? Really, with transcontinental flight and teevee and the internets, I thought stupefying idoicy about Los Angeles...
