Thrilling News!

My dear friend Paul Yoon just had his short story collection "Once the Shore" accepted for publication by none other than the elegant and classy Sarabande Books!!! Paul is such a wonderful, hard working writer, and such a genuinely nice guy. It seems like a marriage made in heaven--I couldn't be more thrilled!

Hey, Maria! How are you?? Send me an email and tell me what you're up to. And I agree, Paul is great in both respects. :)

Maria said...

I will!! I'll catch you up next week--at the moment I'm a little too stressed to put a coherent e-mail together (I'm moving back to Berlin on Sunday!).

Sorry, this comment is not relevant to the thread.

I just wanted to contact you about your blogging comment regarding the recent New Yorker story, Playdate. I posted a few comments about Playdate on Cliff Garstang's blog, and I wondered what you thought of them.
