Max Sebald’s writing advice

So happy to see these former students of Max Sebald’s compiled this list of his writing tips. Each line is gold, but I especially like this: “Don’t listen to anyone. Not us, either. It’s fatal.”

Ann Leary at Barnes & Noble UWS tonight!

I’m thrilled to be helping Ann Leary with pr for her novel, The Good House. If you’re in NYC, she’s reading tonight, Jan. 16, at Barnes & Noble on Broadway at West 82nd Street at 7pm. And if you missed Ann talking with WNYC’s Leonard Lopate yesterday, you can hear their great conversation now online.
