Book Notes

Judy Sheehan’s latest, WOMEN IN HATS, is in stores now. It’s being described as “...a sparkling novel that calls to mind Carrie Fisher's POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE. Judy Sheehan has written a story full of humor and heart, wisdom and hope, about the rich, often fraught relationship between mothers and their daughters.”

For those of you in the New York City area, Judy will be reading tonight at Kettle of Fish (59 Christopher Street, near 7th Ave.)


A college recruiter from Random House once told me that e-books would never replace old-fashioned, bound books. Here’s why.


Am I the only person rooting for this guy?


Keith Gessen was a literary critic; now he’s a first-time novelist. That takes serious guts. After reading this article in the New York Times, I can’t wait to pick up a copy of ALL THE SAD YOUNG LITERARY MEN.
