If I Even See Another Martini, I'll Cry

by Ron Hogan

Last night I got together for happy hour with Sarah Weinman and M.J. Rose. We talked a little bit about how the pledge drive was going (still plenty of books available when you contribute $20 or more), and M. J. filled me in on an idea so clever that if I had a paperback out, I'd do it in a heartbeat: "Is this blog worth $6.99?"

Then it was uptown to David Burke & Donatella for Stephanie Lessing's book party, where apparently I just missed a Julia Stiles sighting. Also celebrating the publication of She's Got Issues was co-founder Carol Fitzgerald, who was once Stephanie's boss back when she was working in magazines.
