The shame of thrillerdom
One event that failed to make it onto my siteâ€™s events page is this Sunday at the Santa Cruz public library, a showing and discussion of the new video â€œMysterious Californiaâ€ with the four of us who are in it. Two to four oâ€™clock, or thereabouts, and if youâ€™re in the area and not trapped by mudslides or fallen trees, come and join us!
And a thought for the day:
A prize-winning novelist has won a settlement of more than Â£100,000 after she claimed to have become so intoxicated by fumes from a nearby shoe factory that she was reduced to writing thrillers.
(That from Sarah Weinman).
