Book Tour Stop #9: Emma Straub’s Hollywood Variety Hour, Brooklyn NY
I have always wanted to have my own talk show, and last night, it actually happened. Stephin Merritt, Andrew McCarthy, Maris Kreizman, and Ira Glass were all game enough to be my guests, and Dan Wilbur acted as my Ed McMahon, and there were balloons and tinsel banners and lots and lots of happy people. Whew.
Some highlights: Maris doing a bunch of Laura Lamont slides just for me, Andrew telling me that I was pretty in pink, Stephin smiling and laughing, Ira reminding Stephin to sing. I loved every minute of it.
