I Call That Expression My "Fox News Glaredown"

by Ron Hogan

blogpanel.jpgAmong the dozens in the live studio audience before which "What the Blog?" was taped last Friday night was a fellow blogger named "BrooklynVegan," and he took pictures. That's Maud Newton with me to the left, and below we're joined by Laila Lalami, Dennis Loy Johnson, George Murray, and Michael Othofer. It was a lot of fun, and it'll be interesting to see how it plays on Book TV later this month. I'm just glad that in his description, Lawrence Hecht left with the impression that "Ron Hogan distinguishes himself by writing up reviews of public readings by authors," because that's much better than "Ron Hogan steamrolls his way through question periods," which was sorta how I felt in a post-panel bout of modesty-induced guilt...which a couple martinis quickly obliterated, thankfully, though I was paying for it until well into Saturday afternoon.
