Quote of the Day: Marie Claire (August 2010/Dakota Fanning Issue)

From a section called “Need to Read,” p. 108, spotlighting My Hollywood, Mona Simpson’s new novel:

(Breathless) Header: In her first novel in 10 years, Mona Simpson shares the glitter, and gritty truths, of tinseltown.

What happens when Claire, a new mom and respected composer, abandons New York so her husband can take his dream job in L.A., the hometown Claire worked so hard to escape? Not only is she thrown back onto the path of her zany mother (and remember, this is the author who wrote Anywhere But Here), but Claire must prove her chops against a network of super-competent Filipina nannies and paranoia-driven moms.

There is only one possible response to the above, dear blog readers : BWAH. HA. HA. (Pause for breath) BWAH. HA. HA. HAAA!

On another note: Nice rejection from n+1 yesterday. Self will shoulder on.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
