Los Angeles Times, 2/21/2012
I had a great time at the Los Angeles Festival of Books with wonderful writers and readers. More than 100,000 people came to the festival, all kinds of people, all ages, many languages. Judy Blume said "hi" to me in the VIP room. ("Are you there, God? It's me, Linda.")
Here's a wrap-up: LA Times Book Prize Winners
I'm reading Ismet Prcic's novel now. It is terrific. I love that he thanked Eileen Myles in his acceptance speech on Friday night at USC.
I thank Eileen, too, and Fanny Howe; without their enthusiasm for my work, I wonder if anyone would have opened my book at all!
