How Quickly the Reviewed Becomes the Reviewer…
The nice people at the NY Times asked me to review the new YA Sherlock Holmes book for them; here's the link.
There was something highly surreal about review someone else's novel for the Times, since it was just a few months ago that I was anxiously fretting my nights away waiting for the Times review of my own novel to appear. (Those nervous and sleepless nights were ended with a review that was so kind and gracious and flattering that upon reading it — in a hotel bar in Scottsdale, AZ of all places — I immediately started crying into my celebratory champagne. The waitress kept looking at me funny.)
Anyhow, it's funny to see how quickly the tables turn.
