Clip Show!

I know, readers, I’m pulling out all the “quick post” stops this week. Bear with me — I promise you will get actual reviews next week, including an in-depth analysis of Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice, which promises to be delightful.

For now, let’s see what’s going on the world of books:

  • The winners of the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest have been announced! I am in love with the one that compares a man’s muscular chest to a pumpkin seed, but the rest are well worth a read.
  • So I am totally jealous of Emily Gould, who turned a job at a gossip magazine and a personal blog into a lucrative writing career.
  • It’s a shame that serious analysis of Twilight’s sexual politics is being reserved for the films, but A. O. Scott’s thoughtful and illuminating review of Eclipse is a must-read.

Have you seen anything interesting in book news recently? Share with us in the comments below!

    Why “Catcher in the Rye” should never be a movie seemed right up your alley!

    I LOVE clip shows and these are pretty fun. The Bulwer-Lytton winners always crack me. I like the schizophrenic ventriloquist one!

      File that clip under “Things I Spend Too Much Time Pondering”! I agree with the writer who said a movie could work with some voice-over narration, but yeah, it would basically be writing “Fuck You” on Salinger’s grave. Thanks for sharing!
