The New Yorker Summer Fiction issue is not to be missed! Really, give it a look...so many different adventures are hiding inside one magazine, including an excerpt of the next novel by Jeffrey Eugenides! It will be called The Marriage Plot. I can hardly wait.
This issue has definitely interrupted my novel reading. And then I discover that Junot Diaz, who also has a short piece in this issue, is revealing what he's reading in June, and tempting me to add a book to the ever-increasing stack that I dream of someday experiencing.
Ann Patchett (Bel Canto), who also has a new book out (State of Wonder), is also bewitching with her own Newsweek Book Bag.
It's such a shame that I must go to work.
