I'm sorry. Did you say Jane Smiley reviewed my book in the New York Times Book Review? Is this one of those MasterCard commercials with "Priceless" at the end? It's such an honor to have Smiley read and assess my book, using the words "energetic," "revealing," "amusing" and "vivid." Watch for the print version of the story in the 16 July issue of the paper.
