Have you experience this: you read a book, and that book makes such a deep impression on you that you are in something of a funk, unable to move on? You just want to go back to that book, or on to another book by that writer. That's sort of how I'm feeling after reading Simon Van Booy's book of stories The Secret Lives of People in Love.
How nice to find that there are plentiful videos of Simon Van Booy. Charm is not a prerequisite for writers (plenty of gifted writers have been perfectly appalling people). But Simon Van Booy gives the most perfectly charming, self-deprecating interview. Here's what I mean:
And here's a longer interview with a bit more "writerly" questions.
I haven't read his work yet, but I have his newest book. I'm anxious to read it because so many people I know love his work.
I'm REALLY excited for this new book. I just need to get my butt to a bookstore and go get it today. Thanks for the adorbs vids!
That's how I feel about Cold Mountain, which I'm reading right now. I'm less than a third of the way through and I already have plans to start over as soon as I'm done. It's a wonderful feeling. :]
You got me! And I just added Everything Beautiful Began After to my crazy long TBR. Thanks. Emma @ Words And Peace
