I'm out of here until January 3rd or so. A nice, long well-earned rest.
I leave you with a longer post until then - please check out the excerpt from Joshua Ferris' lovely forthcoming novel Then We Came To The End.
It's been a terrific year - I finished my novel, found an agent for it and, most importantly, convinced GOTEV to become Mrs. TEV. (And I'll be hosting a great giveaway of Zoe Heller and Sigrid Nunez in a few weeks for the person who helps me come up with something catchier than Mrs. TEV.) I'm hoping 2007 will be a year of big things - at the very least, we'll have a new Michael Ondaatje novel to look foward to.
I continue to marvel at the wit, energy and enthusiasm you all continue to share with me. Thank you for all the emails, the comments and the support. Three years on, this is as much fun as ever.
Happy holidays to you all. See you next year ...
