THE DEAD AUTHORS PODCAST, CHAPTER 31: ANNE FRANK
Thanks to Jamie Denbo, for no particular reason.
Don’t we all, Jane? Don’t we all…
Attachments is a really cute book about two really stalkerish people. So here is a fanart of Lincoln and Beth.
ALSO I’m 100% convinced that Macaé it’s the perfect theme song for this book. Unfortunately it’s portuguese (srsly more people should speak portuguese, you guys have no idea of what you are missing out).
Not Iambic….Do Not Accept…
These tags I’ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my self-esteem and manhood both inflate
when lofty furs I purchase for a cent.
Thy grandpa’s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question’s moot.
I’ll never give my coin to high-street crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden loot
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Like ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I’ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
- Macklemore, “Thrift Shoppe”
*Crying with laughter*
ITS IN IAMBIC PENTAMETER. SWEET JESUS THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE THING.
THIS IS THE MOST BRILLIANT POSY I HAVE EVER SEEN.
Guys, that’s not only Iambic, that’s a fucking sonnet. *claps*
Grammatically correct for the period and a couple of references to Shakespeare’s actual works.
I’m sincerely impressed.
I’ve been wanting to talk about this for a long time …
The UK edition of Fangirl, which comes out Jan. 30, has EXCLUSIVE bonus art from Noelle Stevenson (AKA gingerhaze)!
There’s an illustrated scene between Levi and Cath AND (this is what I’m really excited about …) a cast portrait. So you get Noelle’s take on Levi and Cath, but you also get Wren, Art, Nick and Reagan. (Reagan!)
The UK paperback also has an interview with me and a few Simon Snow deleted scenes.
If you live in the U.S. — or anywhere — and you really want this edition, you can order it from online bookstores. I do this all the time.
The Internet is a magical place.
So is South Plainfield, New Jersey.
Thank you, Rachel Fershleiser, Jeremy West and the amiable wife of Guy Gonzalez!
I have been wanting a photo of the intersection of Eleanor and Park since I wrote the book!
