HNT - New Yorker Is In The House!


I knew it was coming. I confirmed my order some time ago. And according to my calculations, because I chose the free (and slowest) shipping, it would arrive on September 30. Well, how about it waiting for me on the kitchen counter when I came home from work today, September 21?

A big shoutout to my mom, who paid for the thing. Thanks Mom! And another big shoutout to my dad, who got me loving it in the first place. Thanks Pops! (And Happy Birthday!)

The Complete New Yorker - Every Page Of Every Issue, On Eight DVD-ROMs. 4,109 Issues, Half A Million Pages. Mine To Search And Savor.

You like David Sedaris? He's here. You like Adam Gopnik? He's here. Woody Allen? James Baldwin? Saul Bellow? Truman Capote? David Denby? James Dickey? Garrison Keillor? Anthony Lane? Bernard Malamud? Steve Martin? Susan Orlean? Dorothy Parker? Sylvia Path? Salman Rushdie? Upton Sinclair? Susan Sontag? James Thurber? John Updike? All here.

Don't bug me. As long as the power is on and the computer is working, I've got some reading to do.

I AM SO JEALOUS!! That's going into my wish list right now! Love Dave Sedaris! (Currently reading his anthology) Love Steve Martin! (Just finished, and loved, Shopgirl) Sylvia Plath...hellz yeah!

I must recommend Sedaris's "Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules". Very good. Just reading this will leave me broke.
