Publisher’s Weekly has announced Slights as their book of the week. I heard this news as I sat in a hotel room in New York, the noise of the streets below barely disturbing me, and it seemed exactly the right place.
The one regret in my life is that I didn’t come to New York and spend a year or so in my twenties. Laziness and fear stopped me. That failure to act spurs me to write, and to seek publication, and to write more. I won’t ever let myself down again.
