Affecting And A Little Bit Strange

Tina Brown’s webiverse conglomerator (or god, surely there’s a term? someone tell me what we’re calling these, please) The Daily Beast has a feature today on “Four Overlooked Books of 2009“, which includes the following and other nice words for The Slide:

Beachy has a distinct and very funny voice, and the book’s mood of confused longing sticks with you...It’s affecting and a little bit strange—and when I was done I vowed to read whatever Beachy writes next.

Anyone looking for a juicy-as-hell story about why the Times hasn’t yet reviewed The Slide please contact me and I will be happy to make one up.
