A lovely shout-out for Slow Love: How I Lost My Job, Put on My Pajamas, and Found Happiness from Liesl Schillinger in a charming New York Times piece about books you might give your hard-to-please friends. Thank you! And for all of you considering a purchase of Slow Love, I'm including an Amazon link, but only if your local independent is out of stock. Of course.
And more great news for the book: Audible will release an audio version this spring. Which means I'll spend all of next week in a recording booth. I'm very much looking forward to it, as I love to read aloud. I'm the kid who always had her hand raised in class for a turn reading a paragraph. Those were the days. I used to volunteer for the Library of Congress Recording for the Blind program--this in the days before audio books were so easily available. I once recorded a cookbook--I believe it was by Julia Child. That was tough sledding--all those measurements and ingredient lists. The Audible coordinator asked me to be sure to wear "soft clothes" as hard fabrics rustle, and that noise picked up by the sensitive microphones. Petticoats will remain in the closet. Sounds like another pajama project.
