Vanity Fair

Just found out that I’m in "Vanity Fair" this month. I mentioned a while back that a writer for "Vanity Fair" contacted me for an article about my high school, Crossroads. I made the cut and I’m quoted in the article. I haven’t read it yet so I don’t know if it’s completely embarrassing or not. Whenever I’ve been in the newspaper, there’s been something wrong with it--like being called Harry Brown in "Variety" when my novel was optioned. It makes me think that there’s something wrong with every article. If you want to see me embarrassed get the new issue.

Oooh. I can't wait. We actually just started a subscription to Vanity Fair, because we respected what VF reporter Judy Bachrach did on Fox News. (If you didn't see, in a piece that was supposed to be a fawning ode to the greatness of the Chimp and the inauguration, Bachrach insisted on discussing the hypocrisy of extravagant inauguration festivities during a time of war.)

So maybe you'll be in our first issue...

From Banality Fair to Vanity Fair. Normally I find "Vanity Fair" sort of assaulting because of all the advertisements. James Wolcott’s good. Frank DiGiacomo is a total genius because he knows who to quote. Actually, I’ve never read him, so far as I know. He was very good at giving an interview. Always had another question to ask to fill up awkward space, always seemed interested.

Hey, does this mean you can access this blog from Explorer? Sorry to harp on this but I want the design stuff to be over.

Truth is, I have experienced a couple crashes today. But not every time. Aye, Internet Explorer is a fickle mistress.

Read the article. Not so bad at all. Calls me "Novelist Henry Baum" which I can't say I mind. It's in the Hollywood starlet issue. This is very weird and ironic if you read Oscar Caliber Gun/The Golden Calf or North of Sunset.
