Time to Bring the Famished World Another Novel

October 7, 2011 § 2 Comments

I know Houghton Mifflin is publishing one in six months. And I just finished another one. But it’s time for a new one.  There’s been a print shortage here in Santa Barbara.  The level of the word reservoir is dangerously low and they are having to pipe in transitive verbs from the LA aqueduct.  I awoke in the middle of the night to a clawing on my window.  It was Oprah, stalking me from nearby Montecito.  She was still in her bathrobe, obviously the victim of some unsettling dream that only I could cure.  PLEASE, she intoned, PLEASE WRITE ANOTHER BOOK.  Oprah, stop, I said.  You’ll wake the neighbors.
