ReadingSuch is my excitement at this new Suggested Reading site (blog passim), that I am already collecting tips and bribes from bookish contacts for goodies to come. Look out, they beseech, for (inter alii):
- Art Plotnik's "Rising to the Locustion: On Language & Style for Up-&-Coming Writers". Plotnik, whose Elements of Editing shifted a nifty 250,000, is now offering style pointers that go beyond Strunk and White complete with witty advice and concise examples.
- On the pop culture side - foreword by Kate Hudson? - Pamela Des Barres has 'Let's Spend the Night Together' coming from Chicago Review Press. She's the *real* Penny Lane on whose Hudson's 'Almost Famous' rôle was based, and it's her latest about women who became much more than just groupies for some biggie chartbusters. Riding on its back (er - so to speak) will be reissue of her 80s must-read, I'm With the Band.
