Diary: In PW, On NBA, At SPL

Rick Simonsen of Elliott Bay Books wrote a lovely blog entry for Publishers Weekly about the National Book Award nomination, and Sherman’s and my reading at the Seattle Public Library. He included this about me:

“This night Sherman has with him Seattle graphic novel creator Ellen Forney, herself a popular bright spark. Her sensitive drawings give visual texture to the story Alexie writes – which is the closest thing to true memoir he has yet written. I’m not sure if he had cartoonist aspirations as young Arnold/Junior does in The Absolutely True but it’s a nice part of the story, which Forney’s work fleshes out with empathy and wit. Part of the evening is the two of them doing a power-point stroll through parts of the book.”
