My favorite finds from around the web:
• The next right step. “I rolled it around in my mind and tried it on for size. It felt…right.”
• Tana French: By the book. (Because I can’t wait for The Trespasser to come out next week!) “I don’t read anything that wants to tell me the secret of life/success/happiness/enlightenment.”
• My son, the Prince of Fashion. “I took my son to Paris Fashion Week, and all I got was a profound understanding of who he is, what he wants to do with his life, and how it feels to watch a grown man stride down a runway wearing shaggy yellow Muppet pants.” by Michael Chabon.
• Britain releases postage stamps embedded with hidden clues to honor Agatha Christie. “Mystery lovers can use UV light, body heat, or a magnifying glass to search for clues from each book that are embedded into the stamps using microtext and heat-sensitive and UV inks.”
