When the next issue of my my dear old college’s thrice-annual and very pretty magazine arrives, it will feature this article about me, and my book, and how we both relate to dear old Pomona College. No telling where the magazine will arrive. Sometimes my mailperson leaves it peacefully in our building lobby’s obvious OVERSIZE MAIL spot. Other times he/she stuffs it violently into my mail slot, tearing the cover and creating a small pain the the ass but also, I suppose, proving some kind of point.
And I’ve been alerted to yesterday’s Boston Globe calling The Slide “an unusually good, and unusual, coming-of-age story.”
