As all twenty-first century authors know, writing a book is now just a small part of publishing. The real work comes once the book is out. Here’s an instance of that assignment, but one that I will enjoy. On Thursday February 28th, I’ll be at Book Culture (81st and Columbus Ave) talking about My Brilliant Friends with my most brilliant and multi-talented friend, polymath Wayne Koestenbaum: poet, writer, critic, musician, painter, and, not least, my beloved colleague at the Graduate Center (CUNY). I hope to see you there.
From the Department of Self-Promotion
Welcome. Some musings on my current preoccupations with the worlds of illness and the worlds of books: the vicissitudes of living with cancer and the need, for now, to launch (a k a promote) my new memoir, My Brilliant Friends: Our Lives in Feminism. Naturally, I inhabit both spaces, which makes for a strangely bifurcated, though far from boring, existence. Click to view both Feminist Friendship Archive and My Multifocal Life projects.
