New Book: Report of Myself by Gregoire Bouillier. [Small digression alert]: Did you read The Mystery Guest? Stop that. You should. It’s barely 150 pages, but dripping in spectacularness. A memoir centered around one party that Gregoire Bouillier must attend because he’s trying to see if his ex-girlfriend has rekindled her interest towards him. [digression over] Bouillier has written a followup. Well. A pre-followup. Report on Myself takes the reader (that’d be me since I don’t know who’s reading it yet) buzzing about Bouillier’s life. So far: amazing. Full report to follow upon completion. Paperback. 12 bucks.
Publishing Gossip: “Berkley Books is canceling publication of Angel at the Fence, after receiving new information from Herman Rosenblat’s agent, Andrea Hurst, according to a statement from Berkley received this afternoon.” Reports Publishers Weekly. This is a big deal. This would be what not to do with a memoir. Actually I think the story is deeper than what we know at the moment. Snap judgments abound!
