Last night I finished reading the advanced copy of “Winner of the National Book Award : A Novel of Fame, Honor, and Really Bad Weather” by Jincy Willett that Pams gave me. Not as good as her "Jenny and the Jaws of Life: Short Stories" but still pretty damn good. She’s a funny, smart lady. Jhumpa Lahiri, who like Willett had a great collection of short stories out last year, has a novel out as well. I saw it at Pam’s store and the cover makes me not want to read it. It makes the book look like one of those xmas books about miracles that happen to a nice family during the holidays. It also looks like your bedroom after you tried to paint it yourself after you started getting your subscription to Martha Stewart.
