PRESS COVERAGE

Mike the cat was not one bit impressed that I got a big write-up in my hometown paper. But if you don't mind hearing a little more, well, here are some interviews as well as the The New York Times Book Review article on AVA AND PIP. (Click to buy.) Special bonus: a bunch of Letters to the Editor on subjects as varied as cats, bookstores, childhood obesity, and having an "ongoing conversation" rather than "the Talk."  And yes, SPEED OF LIFE has gotten four starred reviews from Kirkus, SLJ, PW, and Booklist. 

Speed of Life is a New York Post must-read

LETTERS & REVIEW

I admit: I'm delighted that The New York Times Book Review liked AVA AND PIP (see below) and that The Times has published over 41 of my Letters to the Editor.  "A Presidential Meow" is one of the shortest letters they ever published. "Is Obesity OK?" was a Sunday Dialogue and is more serious. I also wrote one about independent bookstores. View letters.

A Presidential Meow

"Re politicians and their pups (front page, April 1): Cat pictures, please."


Is Obesity OK?

“I’ve been an advice columnist for 20 years, and I wish we could change the depressing fact that one of three kids is overweight or obese....”

 

Independent Bookstores

"It always hurts to see a bookstore shut its doors for whatever reason…"


Obama and the Kids

“I hope that the Obamas are having fun in Hawaii. Raising teenagers is hard. Doing so in public is a feat. As Jerry Seinfeld once said, 'There is no such thing as fun for the whole family.'...”
