Update: 3:50 p.m., Wednesday: Okay, I didn’t quite make that “within 24 hours.” But I’ll be back very soon. Jan

What! You want me to explain why I’ve posted no reviews so far this week when I’d normally have one or two up by Tuesday? Have you forgotten that I grew up in Central New Jersey (Yankees territory) and spent summers in that two-room shack without running water in South Jersey (Phillies territory)? Oh, you are cruel if you expect me to lash myself to my desk and write during beer commercials. So I’ll just say I hope to be back within 24 hours with comments on at least one of the books I’ve finished recently: Mitch Albom’s Have a Little Faith and David Small’s National Book Award finalist, Stitches. I am also reading Chronic City and The Informers and may say more about Bright-sided and Charles and Emma. In the meantime you can follow me on Twitter, where I’ve been writing about my efforts to finish Chronic City and other topics.


  1. Sure, honey child, we southern canines would much prefer a new book to read over hearing ’bout some d—-d Yankees! Is Grant still managing them?

  2. Yep, that’s what we expect. You can write reviews during the ball game and/or stay up late and/or get up early. Down here in Atlanta Braves territory, we’re working 24/7 to keep our friends around the Internet happy. 🙂

    • But you’re not going to make the Yankees’ fans too happy by mentioning our former Series rivals, the Braves (though the Braves would be better than the Red Sox) …
