No, it's not your imagination. Posting has been slowing down around here, a mild case of holiday torpor and sugar coma. We'll be signing off tomorrow for the holidays with something we hope is a bit special. Until then, go and check out the Prodigal Son's return as NEA Director of Literature David Kipen signs his The Schreiber Theory today at Metropolitan Books downtown. (Give us a holler, Mr. K., and we'll buy you a candy apple if you head to the westside.) Thanks to Dan Olivas for the heads up.
