I’m so excited! My book got a really nice mention in the spanking-new December issue of O Magazine! It’s in the “BibliO” (!) subsection of the “reading room,” under the subtitle “Deliciously quirky books about visionaries, truth tellers, and bedmates who sleep in style.” And here’s exactly what got said:
“Hugely entertaining and deadpan smart, Evany Thomas’s The Secret Language of Sleep (McSweeney’s) details 39 positions for dormant lovers, from Melting Spoons (that’s Classic Spooning for codependents) to Starfish and Conch (‘the preferred position for couples who fight well together’) and Sixth Posture of the Perfumed Forest (one hand on stomach, opposite elbow across eyes). Amelia Bauer’s line drawings, evocative of prim 1950s sex guides, give this tiny volume its tart appeal.” Isn’t that the best? I am HAPPY!
Meanwhile, and I’m not just saying this because Oprah called my book “hugely entertaining and deadpan smart,” but doesn’t the mighty O look seriously great on December’s cover?
Edited to add: Andrew just filed a complaint about the above entry. “Thanks a lot,” it reads, “the book reviews are my favourite part of my Omag (that’s what we call it on the O discussion boards), and now when my subscription comes this month, I’ve already had part of it ruined for me. JEEZ.” My apologies to Andrew…and also to the rest of yew.More words on: oprah
