I made some more fan art, this one from my favorite line in Jami Attenberg’s The Middlesteins. I loved Edie, and even though food was ultimately her downfall, there was something beautiful about her hearty enjoyment of it, which this line sums up perfectly. 
(I know the pub date for The Middlesteins isn’t until the end of October, but this was too good not to share immediately.) 

I love this book and I love this cross-stitch and I love to eat.

Here’s a piece I wrote for Salon about the Maslin review.

The final chapter in this story!!! (We hope. ) A must-read.

I assume this has all been an elaborate plot (in which Janet Maslin was involved) to make me want to read this book, because that is indeed what has happened. Truly, bravo to you, Patrick Somerville.
