I got an e-mail this morning from Elizabeth (the magic publicist) She's putting together an interview on Montana Public Radio. I have been on the radio before, on the program, "Two Broads Casting" here in Davis. It was actually a lot of fun, though I agonized over the appearance in anticipation. Before I went on I cautioned the hosts, "I am so sorry, but if you ask me for any specific name or date, I WILL blank and you will have an awkward, ugly pause on the air."
When asked what books I am reading or have loved, I stammer and stutter and hundreds of books whir through my mind and I can't read the title or the author's name of a single one.
In light of that particular drawback of mine, (one of many, alas) I should be better prepared. I'll write down my favorite authors and books (or three of them, at least) in preparation for the inevitable question.
Today, in addition to the book list, I need to drop off a few more books, a few more invitations, call the Bistro to make sure they can accomodate a crowd for drinks post reading, find my missing favorite jeans (WHERE could they have gone?) and print off still more bookmarks and postcards.
