A Taste of Fall

A Taste of Fall

  It’s not an East Coast fall—with hundred year old maples blinding you with thousands of bright yellow leaves, or the next tree with mixes of oranges, or the one after that with shades of reds from raspberry to burgundy. Here in Southern California, we have to look for our fall. We found a patch [...]

Andrew McCarthy at Vroman’s

Andrew McCarthy at Vroman’s

Becoming famous amidst the 1980s and (it appears) a reluctant member of the “brat pack,” Andrew McCarthy seems to have spent the intervening years finding his way—in his acting career and his personal life—desiring to move forward via his own direction, and not as a consequence of the Hollywood creation-and-packaging machine. Oh, and he wanted [...]

Lippman: When She Was Good

Serial versus stand-alones. Yes, stand-alone is a noun, though we did flip through the American Heritage Dictionary to double-check. We should have known better than to doubt our primary source: author Laura Lippman. In an interview with the Sacramento Bee, she says that her “stand-alones,” or rather her novels that are not a part of [...]
