Things Come Together
3 February 2010
Sometimes, yes, Things Fall Apart; but today, they come together…
27 days to release of Long for This World. This first shipment of hard covers are in, and tomorrow I’ll actually see it/hold it in my hand.
Press release, book group guide, events, hope for reviews, a book trailer (!) — things are happenin’. How about that.
A gratifying convergence: my mentor from graduate school David Shields has a new book coming out in February, Reality Hunger: A Manifesto. Look out next week for a meaty two-part interview-conversation we put together for The Millions. It’s fun (for me) to see us criss-crossing on book tour, like here, at Brookline Booksmith (scroll down) and here at McNally Jackson.
Another piece of “coming together” good news is forthcoming; I could tell you right now, but then, well, I’d have to kill you. And that would be terrible.
