October edition: giving thanks to Susie Moloney, Jordan Zivitz and his crying gals, Jonathan Lethem, Guinness and Pierre Obendrauf’s GPSOctober 11, 2009
Is it possible to be famous, talented and also nice? Is there any shame in a good country-music cry? If you steal a story idea and create a new story, is it necessarily theft? What’s one more reason to keep your pantry stocked with Guinness? And, finally what good is a GPS in a storm in the Swiss Alps when you’re wearing only shorts? The answers to all these questions and more in the October issue of 11th Ave:
- Meet the latest Proust Questionnaire 5.0 victim: Susie Moloney, authoress of thrillers and scary books. Dead funny, too.
- In his latest edition of sountracking, Jordan Zivitz puts a lump in your throat and some good music in your ear with Iris DeMent, Patty Griffin and Kasey Chambers.
- In the occasional series the fine print, author Jonathan Lethem begs you to steal from him. Sort of.
- Lucy Waverman puts Guinness in the oven in this month’s read, cook, eat.
- And photographer Pierre Obendrauf shares a hard-won view of the Alps in this month’s snap.
Now pass the stuff and don’t hog the gravy. Happy Thanksgiving.
