The day is shot, the schedule too impacted for a roundup or a post pulled from my matts. I’ll see you tomorrow. But in the meantime, as Ron and others have pointed out, the Gray Lady has reported some major book news: Sales of Flann O’Brien’s The Third Policeman are up after the book appeared on Lost.
I don’t have the Times‘ resources, but I just might be able to scoop the New York Times by reporting that J.T. Leroy is a fake, James Frey is a liar, and, to my great astonishment, Vollmann was nominated for the National Book Award (will he win?).
Besides, the biggest piece of news doesn’t involve books, but it depresses the hell out of me: Bush got re-elected! Who knew?
