Hello, friends and loyal subscribers!
Realized that it has been a while since I finished a book and, well, I wanted to reassure you that I’ve not gone to ground. The last few weeks have been intensely busy at work with no fewer than twelve readings line-produced by yours truly (well, alongside Eric Louie, Director of Special Projects) at The Public Theater. Plus the opening of Shakespeare in the Park. So there’s barely been time to sleep, let alone keep to my usual voracious pace of literary consumption.
Never fear, though. I’m moving rapidly towards the end of the absolutely stunning book I’m reading right now and I can’t wait to ramble on about it at length. Rebecca Feinberg was not kidding when she told me this book would bewitch me. But anyway, I hope you’re all doing well. I’m sorry I’ve been away so long. I promise to do my best not to let it happen again.
