It looks like Quick Study is rapidly turning into a blog devoted to news about about what friends are doing. All of which turns out to be much more interesting than anything the proprietor would have to report.
Unless, of course, you want to read about me reading about Regis Debray. Trust me, it's better this way.
Publisher's Lunch announces that Peter Terzian, who used to be deputy editor in the books section at Newsday is...well, editing a book:
Peter Terzian, ed.'s JUST FOR THE RECORD: WRITERS ON THE ALBUMS THAT CHANGED THEIR LIVES, featuring such writers as Pankaj Mishra, Geoff Dyer, Daniel Handler, Ben Kunkel, Colm Toibin, and Stacey D'Erasmo, to Rakesh Satyal at Harper Perennial, in a pre-empt, by Anna Stein at the Irene Skolnick Agency [NA].
Way to go! I have no idea what "in a pre-empt" would mean in this context, but it's probably a good thing.
