Shameless Namedropping Nov 17 issue


I just finished a truly excellent and highly entertaining and fun novel, The Cuban Affair by Nelson DeMille. It contains both Cuba and affairs and a bunch of other stuff, too. It also mentions our friend Alan Gross, whose experience in Cuba wasn’t excellent, highly entertaining, or fun. If he writes a book about it, you should absolutely buy it.


A very nice agent


A very nice agent asked for a link to my blog. I foolishly gave it to him. So I am saying, on the record, most agents are great—especially him.*

*Notice how, as a matter of ethics, I haven’t mentioned him by name. Sure. Right.
