Yup, I Read Now

The wild things are coming, Twilight is lampooned, Nick Hornby still rich
bookish blog title

*Norton Juster and Jules Feiffer, the author and illustrator of The Phantom Tollbooth, (which introduced me to words and phrases like “dodecahedron,” “doldrums,” and “awful din”) will re-team for The Odious Ogre, set for a fall 2010 release. Alliteration aficionados, activate ! (<—awful attempt at alliteration).

*Juliet, Naked debuts at #11 on the New York Times Best Sellers List, Nick Hornby = rich(er) man.

*Herta Müeller wins 2009 Nobel Prize in Literature. Is it horrible that I don’t really care? (But I do love those umlauts in her name.)

*Maurice Sendak doc, Tell Them Anything You Want airs October 14 on HBO. I would probably be more excited about this if I wasn’t so totally inundated with all of this Where the Wild Things Are stuff (like these clothes, which are actually kind of cool). I sense some backlash in the very near future. The movie comes out October 16.

*The wunderkinder over at the Harvard Lampoon set to release Twilight parody entitled Nightlight.

*Time Out New York (briefly) interviews John Krasinski of The Office fame about his adaptation of David Foster Wallace’s Brief Interviews with Hideous Men and RZA of Wu-Tang Clan fame about his new book The Tao of Wu.

*San Francisco Litquake is in full effect.
