Bettering Your Life Through Gimlets and Cream
Anyway, we had a good time, and I saw, bizarrely, three people I'd known from my dead-end government job days. More bizarrely, they were actually three people I LIKED.
I was nominated in the "Inspirational Memoir," along with Brooke Shields, Jeannette Walls, Cindi Broaddus and.... Joan Didion. And I totally Nadered Joan's ass! At least that's my theory. Because instead of The Year of Magical Thinking, the award was won by Jeannette Walls' The Glass Castle. Which is supposed to be very good.
Oh - and Books For a Better Life thinks my name is Julie Powell Little. Which is kind of cute. I might starting using it.
PS That Nader joke isn't mine. Wish I could claim it, but it was originally cracked by my publicist, Michelle, who is much more brilliant than I am.
