8 AFTER SEX, A NOVEL SOUVENIR: Publishers Weekly, which critiqued Ephron's book, noted her "anecdote about Roth . . . concerning her friend Jane, who had a one-night stand, long ago, with the then 'up-and-coming' writer. He gave Jane a copy of his latest book. 'Take one on your way out,' he said. Conveniently, there was a box of them by the front door." [Link times out tonight!]
8 Washington hit by curse of the kid bloggers: Frist is one of at least half a dozen US politicians — and at least one US Supreme Court judge — whose public images have been dented in recent months by the internet antics of their offspring. Pictures of scantily clad daughters whooping it up have become a staple of internet gossip.
h/t Grumpy Old Bookman: [W]hen you think about it, there are quite good reasons why politicians' kids should be whackier than average.
8 HOLLOW VICTORY: FORMER Star magazine scribe Stephanie Green has won her court case to publish a book a la "The Devil Wears Prada" - overturning a confidentiality agreement she signed - but no one's interested. Green spent more than $30,000 winning her case, but no publisher is jumping to sign a deal, much to the relief of Bonnie Fuller and Star editor Joe Dolce - who come off pretty badly in the excerpts of the "fiction" we read on Green's blog, Dishalicious. It could be that, with the exception of "Prada," no one's interested in tales that excoriate former bosses or co-workers.
I guess all the attention is getting to her: Um, the blog is getting a little too personal as of late, now that more than just friends and family are reading. And it's kind of creeping me out again.
Here's her profile .
