The Happiest Hour – 3/15/19

I’m coming to you from the Sunshine State, from where I shall travel this weekend to the hallowed halls of Hogwarts…and Margaritaville. I wonder what the cocktail game is like at the Leaky Cauldron.

Here’s what you missed this week:

  • This first time I heard about this picture book was recently from a coworker who, up until a few years ago, had been convinced her grandmother made up this story. And after reading this, I’m gonna say: no grandmother is twisted enough to concoct a tale for innocent children about millions of cats that murder each other.
  • My favorite review from the New York Times’s recap of their most regrettable book reviews? “As discouraging as a breakfast of cold porridge.”
  • Should we tell those Amazon reviewers that the Wuthering Heights house is for sale?
  • If you want to be a successful writer, you need a story about spies on a daring adventure who fall in love (but have troubled pasts) and save some kids at a magical school. At least, according to the accountants.

 

Cheers,

E
