Tell me something you did that took a lot of guts.
Wednesday, Kimberlee Auerbach will be here for another installment of Writers Sing! Here’s what people are saying about her book:
“So fresh and original you don’t want it to end. An enchanting debut.”
–Naomi Wolf, author of The Beauty Myth
“Frank, funny, and fiercely insightful.”
–Susan Shapiro, author of Lighting Up and Five Men Who Broke My Heart
“Warning: there will be times when you will be laughing so hard that you won’t
realize that you are also crying…. A shining example of what it means to be
humorously flawed and gloriously alive.”
–Courtney Martin, author of Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters
Thank you to Hillary Carlip, for introducing us!
Random Henderson things: I just had a story picked up for an anthology called ONLINE WRITING: THE BEST OF THE FIRST TEN YEARS. It’s always amusing to me which pieces get selected and which get overlooked. And I also have something in THE BEST AMERICAN NON-REQUIRED READING 2007, which is out now. My piece is illustrated by my good friend, Brian McEntee. Check it out if you can. Finally, Mr. Henderson won the “Best of Show” award for his film, GHOST STORY. It was a unanimous selection, and this was at a film festival with a theme of psychiatric hospitals.
Last thing: I was approached by someone about writing his biography. This is not something I have time for, but if anyone here (who has already done this kind of work with a reputable publishing company) is interested, drop me a note in this thread, and we’ll talk. Speaking Korean is a plus for this project, and there are likely some extremely high-powered folks who would blurb the book. Okay. Let me know, and thanks.
