Celebrate

Congratulations to Laila Lalami for her recent two-book deal with Algonquin, one of which is her collection of short stories, "The Things That Death Will Buy." I have read several of these stories and I can tell you they are BRILLIANT!

Yes, wonderful news! And may we all join her ranks, soon. Or, at least in my case, as soon as the writing is good enough. :)
