Me on the Madeleine Brand Show

I was interviewed on the wonderful Madeleine Brand Show this morning (on KPCC, SoCal NPR station), about Eva Gabrielsson, Stieg Larsson, and the piece I wrote for Slate. You can listen to the interview here!
As someone who loved every single page of Stieg Larsson's addictive, smart, feminist Millennium trilogy, I've been following the saga of his longtime partner, Eva Gabrielsson, with obsessive interest. Her memoir, Millenium, Stieg et Moi has just come out in French, and I've written this article about it for Slate.

Pulp History

My review of the wonderful Devil Dog, first in the Pulp History series from David and Margaret Talbot. Both of the books that have been released so far - Devil Dog, The Amazing True Story of the Man Who Saved America and Shadow Knights, The Secret War Against Hitler - are fantastically entertaining histories for kids and adults accompanied by great graphic novel art.

Why Is David Lynch Pimping This Handbag?

My new piece up at Slate about a cool little trend of "advertising films" directed by people like David Lynch, Dennis Hopper, and Olivier Dahan, and made for big fashion houses. There's a gallery of the films along with the piece, so you can watch them all right there. Enjoy!

Niffenegger is the author of The Time Traveler's Wife, a great novel if you haven't read it, and she's a fascinating visual artist, who was a lot of fun to interview.

Vidalia in Paris, a young adult novel by Sasha Watson, is published by Viking.

When Vidalia wins a scholarship to study art abroad for the summer, she can’t believe her good fortune.
