i just received the exquisite Korean edition of my book, A Kiss Before You Go. The same publisher who created the K version of Everyday Matters did another amazing job, hand lettering all the type in crayon, pen and brush. What an honor. And how strange to see my private journals in a language I don’t understand!

The worst of times, the best of times.
as if you did?
A lovely piece
Seth Apter, to whose book, The pulse of mixed media: secrets and passions of 100 artists revealed, I contributed to last year, has written a beautiful post about AKissB4UGo.
My debut on slate.com
I was fortunate to get a lovely review on slate.com this week.
I was also invited to illustrate all of the articles on their book review section this month. I haven’t done drawings for hire like this in a while but it was great fun. You can see all nine of them here.
I am traveling to Bangkok right now and writing this post in the Hong Kong flight club so it may take me a while to post all of the actual drawings here. Meanwhile, check me out on slate.
A new review in The Long Island Pulse
A nice review from someone who doesn’t much like my handwriting.You can read it here.
A Chipper Chat on WGAU
You can hear my talk with Barbara Dooley in Athens, GA. I’m a little tongue-tied at first but soon hit my stride and explain what Everyday Matters is all about, introduce A Kiss Before You Go, and discuss various other odd things.
Two interviews I like
Here are two lengthyish radio interviews I did recently.
The first is with broadcasting legend Bob Edwards for his show on NPR and on XM Sirius satellite radio. In case you missed it, here’s a 30 minute recording with images from the book.
The second is with family therapist David McMillian on his show, Strategies for LIving.
You can hear that here.
Here & Now
NPR is broadcasting my conversation with Robin Young on Here & Now today. You can read about it and hear the interview here.
A free Kiss!
Loobylu is holding a contest and giving away a free copy of my latest book. You gotta be in it to win it.
Here & Now
This afternoon, I’m taping an interview for HERE & NOW, on WBUR Radio, NPR, Boston. Here & Now is a national show, sandwiched between MORNING EDITION and ALL THINGS CONSIDERED in the morning NPR lineup. The show is syndicated on 170 stations across the country from Alaska to New England so hopefully you’ll get to hear it.
I’ll let you know if I find out when it will be broadcast or available online.
