The Grand Surprise: The Journals of Leo Lerman

I went to a party Monday night with the people who worked on the book New York Diaries: 1609 to 2009. That is the author, Teresa Carpenter, on the far left, and I’m going to be writing more about New York Diaries at the beginning of next year. I was a fact checker for the book—best job ever—which I’ll talk about.

The gentlemen in the picture is Stephen Pascal. He edited the journals of Leo Lerman, and the review I’ve linked is just so evocative of a world that I must have this book. I also wish Stephen Pascal was my next door neighbor and best friend so we could grab a cup of coffee and talk every day about our lives, New York, books, and what is gone and what is left. to Stephen’s right is one of the editors for the book Victoria Wright, also fabulous.

I must say I’m very disappointed in my upper arms. I swim or work out daily. I’m in great shape, I’m thin. They should look better! Damnit. More cut or something.

  1. That book looks really interesting, I will have to check it out

    Stacy, your arms look fine in that picture. If they seem undefined that’s because they’re in motion, thus hazy. Be more generous to yourself, its Christmas! 🙂

    Also B12 is best to take as a sub-lingual lozenge. Many things in your digestive tract can make absorption difficult otherwise. Oftentimes people will still have low B12 levels if they take B12 as part of an oral B Complex or as part of a multivitamin.
