I'm back at work, taken down mid-update by a seriously vicious cold bug. I've got a large amount of backlogged posts that I want to share with everyone before I head off to NY for BEA (reports forthcoming), but before I forget, I've added a new event to the readings sidebar - Michael Sledge will read from his novel The More I Owe You at Skylight Books. It's a fictionalized rendering of Elizabeth Bishop's 17 year sojourn in Rio and comes just on the cusp of what is sure to be Bishop-mania with the centennial of her birth in 2011. I'm planning to come check this one out - it comes recommended from trusted friends - and I hope you'll be there as well.
Updates are brewing. Stand by.
