EAT ME LA, a video series

I am a terrible cook. That does not stop my friend Angela from inviting herself over for lunch.

Nick Hornby mentions my book in his column, "Stuff I've Been Reading."

In the July/August issue of The Believer magazine, Nick Hornby says he just bought my book. The Believer is a great magazine and Nick Hornby is hilarious. I'm honored.

NYT Acrostic Puzzle - Sunday, February 26th, 2012

ACROSTIC, Puzzle by Emily Cox and Henry Rathvon
Edited by Will Shortz

This Sunday’s acrostic draws a quotation from Fiction Ruined My Family


The author’s name and the title of the work: DARST, FICTION RUINED MY FAMILY

The full paragraph of the quotation: As a kid I was absolutely terrified of clichés. My father forbade them in our home. It was like the way other people regarded cursing in their house. If you said, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink,” my father would go ballistic. Mom couldn’t control herself, apparently, because she violated this rule about every five seconds.
