I stumbled across a review of my novel in something called Obit Mag (who knew?). It's one of the nicest reviews I've ever received, and I am feeling unabashed, improbable joy over this line in particular: "Cohen pulls off the most pitch-perfect drunk speech since J. P. Donleavy."
And then my editor just wrote to say that "Grief" has been named one of Kirkus's top 25 fiction books of 2011. I can hardly believe it.(Oh! Isn't it funny that seven days ago I posted about feeling happy for other people's good news?)
