Seeing these two book reviews in the New York Times surprised me this morning.



Suzanne Vega reviews the Peter Ames Carlin Paul bio:

Nellie McKay writes about last year's Philip Norman John bio:

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/20/books/review/McKay-t.html?ref=books


Which book (or review) do you prefer?

Nellie's parody of Lennon's In His Own Write style is funny, but requires some analysis.

I guess that's a compliment. Thanks.

I'm sure Lucy is trying.

Here's a bit from Nellie's J.L. review, about Stu and Pete:


"Deforming a band took conservatives and phunning. Larfing with skittle and covers meant going unheard in a confession where the violence is everything. Timbers flewed in and stout based on the penance they played, their ingrationship with other cads, and hairpile. Very narsty was the Weasels’ dismissal of Mae West (no card or notting), and Jebbin may have killed Hugh Hut in a fit of needing to kick somebody’s head in (ay but who moon ous dent know that feel)."

Nellie's an ace writer. Her Dog Song is my favorite  :

She certainly has a wicked sense of humour.
