[DIARY OF A MEMOIRIST] Regarding Susan Sontag

Saturday night I watched the showing of Nancy Kates’s marvelous documentary about Susan Sontag at the Tribeca Film Festival. I was lucky enough to belong to the board of advisors for the film, and that brought me to a reception before it was shown. A few of us (including Terry Castle, from her essay on “Notes on…

In my last post I chronicled the long and winding road I travelled to a contract for my new memoir. I feel incredibly lucky, but, as I’m sure you know, getting a book contract is only part of the publishing picture.

In the same message telling my wonderful agent that my memoir had been accepted, the kindly editor added a kind of warning, or at least a very strong…

In about four weeks, Breathless: An American Girl in Paris, my new memoir, will be officially published. So soon, you say, didn’t you publish a book in 2011? Two years ago? What is this, speed writing? Yes and then no.

I’d be thrilled if I were the sort of writer who could produce a new book every…

Savage Beauty: A Review

Documenting the life of anyone is bound to be occasionally problematic. Edna St. Vincent Millay’s life was more in line with that of a Greek Goddess than any mere mortal: impulsive, passionate, effusive, sometimes insensitive, occasionally self-destructive, and thoroughly lusty, to name only a few. In her time, she was considered the dominant voice of rebellious… Continue

When The Past Haunts: IN HER WAKE

“The day my mother killed herself, she had just finished preparing her house on Marlborough Street for the anticipated return of her children after a fierce custody battle with my father. There were six of us and much to do.”

Dear Fancy Nancy (aka Jane O'Connor/Robin Preiss Glasser):

I love you!

Thank you for your book "Ooh La La! It's Beauty Day." My five year old daughter found the instructions for setting up her own Oh La La! Spa to be devine (that's fancy for perfect). She swapped out the directions for the honey masque for an exfoliation one I had, but it did not diminish the experience one bit (just so you know).

After placing the cucumber slices on my eyelids, she asked me to lay down on the couch, then she serenaded (that's fancy for playing a… Continue
