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.
