All The Food In The Opening 1/4 of The Middlesteins
The opening 1/4, of course, because Photoshop crashed while I was charting the rest of the book and I’m an idiot, so this was my last save point and it is 3:30am and I want to hurl myself out my 2nd story window (that’s a reference to the book — read it!). It’s going in the queue.
Spoiler: The pile of food just keeps growing.
The point is, this is a great book, I highly recommend it and it’s coming out in paperback today. What’s more, there is a nice party at Housing Works to celebrate the launch this evening. I’ll be there, engaging in self-loathing partially stemming from the few hours of work on the latter 3/4 of this book-chart I just destroyed. Come say something nice to me, I need it, but more importantly say something nice to Jami Attenberg for writing such a wonderful novel.
