Dept. of Self Promotion

My interview at Tales From the Reading Room made a modest noise this week, getting some attention from Scott McLemee‘s Quick Study, the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies, and my home at the Washington City Paper, where the standing rule is that you cannot publicly say nice things about your colleagues without digging up bad five-year-old photos of them. Thanks to Victoria Best for the invite and the great questions, and to all the new folks who arrived here from her site.

Also, I have brief reviews of books on Jack Nicholson and Woody Allen in Sunday’s Washington Post Book World.

  2. Aw, shucks, I thought it might be a review of Mere Anarchy.

  3. Sorry! With assignments like this, I just do as I’m told. I still catch his movies, but haven’t read a collection of his stories and “casuals” after “Without Feathers.”

  4. Mark – the interview went down a storm at my site. Thanks so much for providing such excellent answers – and it was a lot of fun to do.
