…is really nice.
Went to a reading of The Believers tonight at the rather grandiosely named Powerhouse Arena in DUMBO. She was great, and the book (not to be confused with the 2002 Martin Sheen film), which I should have already read by now, is supposed to amazing, although it will be hard to top Notes on a Scandal (not to be confused with the 2008 documentary about Charlie Sheen). If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it. Otherwise, there’s the film version, although they did a crap job with the casting (Cate Blanchett? Judi Dench? Come on).
In person, Ms. Heller is warm and charming and pretty, and even allowed me to talk about my own book, which I described as a “less retarded Twilight.” My usual pitch is “Juno meets Frankenstein,” but I’m thinking I’m gonna go with that from now on.
Anyhow, not a bad way to spend a Tuesday evening. Certainly better than sitting around watching Martin or Charlie Sheen movies.
