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
There was something highly surreal about review someone elses 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, its funny to see how quickly the tables turn.
