Copyedits for Ms. Z

Received the copyedits from my intrepid editor Barry Jowett for MS. ZEPHYR'S NOTEBOOK today. A looming deadline to get the book out by the end of May will necessitate a very quick turn-around, so the leisurely days of strolling the streets of San Francisco are melting into memory. Nose to keyboard is the new reality.

Ah, well. It is where I am happiest, after all.

I am very interested to see how this particular endeavour will appear between covers, as it takes an absolutely different form than any of my previous books. Am strangely excited by the prospect.

Had a picnic with my son and watched Casino Royale, tonight, as some bonding time was in order after recent trek to distant lands. Can safely say that Daniel Craig makes a truly fine Bond.

Still chugging through the Palin diaries (after brief abandonment to enjoy Burroughs), and have added Dorothy Parker to the nightstand for dipping.
