LA Times Book Fest Saturday april 21st 1.30

I am sorry I haven't posted here at all - if I've been speaking out loud (writing out loud) it's generally on twitter where I am @girlinterrupter. I'm also very sorry it's taken so long for me to read and post your comments. I am so grateful for every kind word. I've been keeping my head down for the last few months working (as you may or may not know) on the film of Your Voice In My Head. We start shooting soon, so I'll likely be silent a bit longer. BUT tomorrow (sat) I am on a panel at the LA Times Festival of Books on the campus of USC. It's called 'Over The Edge' and is about memoir. My fellow panelists are Charles Shaw, Dinah Lenney and Cheryl Strayed (whose wondrous 'Wild' I recently devoured). It's at 1.30, so do come along if you can....

Florence+The Machine

This was a tough secret to keep for the last month: I wrote the liner notes for 'Ceremonials', the new Florence album that came out yesterday. The album is mesmerizing. If you haven't heard it, look out for the lyrical echoes of Virginia Woolf and 'Prufrock' by TS Eliot. It got me really hard.

President Michele Bachmann - thank you NY Times:

"John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa," Mrs Bachmann told Carl Cameron of Fox news in an interview. "That's the kind of spirit that I have, too".
"The actor was actually born in Winterset, Iowa, which is about 150 miles southwest of Waterloo. It was John Wayne Gacy, known as the killer clown who raped and murdered 33 teenage boys in the 1970's, who lived in Waterloo."


Book Court, Brooklyn, this weds

I should have said the reading this Wednesday is at 7pm!

Country Strong

I have seen this film so many times, as many times as I've actually seen the good movies I love. Do yourself a favour and rent immediately. And I do so enjoy the girls of gofugyourself:

Don't eat the daisies...

Aw, man! You know what's really lovely on a sunday? Doris Day!

I fully have those blue trousers and tan loafers in my wardrobe. I am considering experimenting with a blouse buttoned all the way to the top. Will certainly let you know how I get on...
