I’m sorry. Is anyone else finding these “rules for novelists” to be unhelpful? It’s so interesting how he tries to pretend that “readers are his friends” when he crapped on Oprah for trying to get “those people” to read his novels. via

I think the first few words in your suggestion are the problem. I think, as white women especially, we need to be listening to black women and who they are excited about.

I’m so sorry. Fuck words for being so inadequate. And fuck cancer. And fuck 2018.

It’s official. Signature is closing down. Very sad, but hoping to continue work at both Read It Forward and other places. If you hear of anything, let me know. 🤷‍♀️

As I type, I’m at work on essays and book lists that will debut there in the coming weeks. I’m in mourning for the loss of this space on the internet that was such a vibrant, intellectually interesting place to talk about books. Thank you all for reading.

I could not have asked for better people to work with and for, and I’m extremely sad that we are saying goodbye. The good news for me is that I will be continuing on with another Penguin Random House book site: Read It Forward.

have enjoyed the intellectual freedom that I have experienced at Signature, where I’ve been allowed to tie my views of the world to the books I love.

Whatever credibility may have had is gone. Why would he knowingly invite a man who displayed sociopathic “womp womp” reaction to tortured children plus someone who assaulted women onto his show? I’m done watching.

What the hell is disgraced fascist Cory Lewandowski doing on ? Has the network lost all standards? Why did invite him on the show? Deeply shaming. Why? Someone needs to explain why he’s on MSNBC.

Of all the books I’ve read so far that were written by contemporaries of the period, FEAR by Chevallier was the most harrowing, and yet, most poetically written of the novels.
