Robert Birnbaum has posted another wonderful interview, this time with author Adam Nicolson. Nicolson wrote God’s Secretaries: The Making of the King James Bible, which I have on good authority, namely my boyfriend’s grandmother, is a wonderful book and most recently he has published Seize the Fire: Heroism, Duty, and the Battle of Trafalgar.

Have I mentioned the Soft Skull Press blog? It’s colorful and fun. Today Richard Nash posted about publishing a book about Iranian bloggers.

And speaking of Soft Skull Press, one of their books, the memoir of cultural icon Lisa Carver, got a great review from the Boston Globe of all places (I was shocked too).

And trying to prove me wrong about them, the Globe also has an article about NaNoWriMo, that is National Novel Writing Month, wherein people try to write 50,000 words (about 175 pages) by the end of November.

    FWIW: Lisa Carver and Ideas writer Josh Glenn go waayyyy back. He used to publish her in his zine Hermenaut, so perhaps he helped pitch the piece on her.

    I see. Josh Glenn’s section is more interesting. They review all sorts of indie books in there. Why they keep them separate is beyond me. (Yes, they are in the same section, but they are distinctly different—you can tell from the level of boredness as you flip through)
