TT: A friendlier piece of advice to publicists
Forgive my testiness in the earlier version of this posting that I decided to scrap--I got a little bit too much mail today, and it made me a little bit crazy. Allow me to replace it with this kinder, gentler pair of suggestions:
• Please don't send me unsolicited review copies of books or CDs. I don't have time to examine them, or room in my small Upper West Side apartment to store them. I keep a close eye on publishers' catalogues and listings of new releases, and if I want something, I'll let you know.
• Please don't send mass-mailed press releases to my public e-mailboxes. I get so much spam that I have no choice but to delete all such mail without reading it.
