Hooray, the Observer’s back from vacation – thank goodness, that freaky mustachioed puppet-marionette thing up on the website for the past two weeks kind of freaked me out. Good stuff this week:
- Dexter Filkins and John Burns of the NYT’s Iraq contingent: Two great tastes that taste great together!
- The NYT‘s James Risen is “the anti-Woodward” and his book has some “stunning stuff”
- Alexandra Jacobs reviews “You’ll Never Nanny in This Town Again” by Suzanne Hansen, which isn’t the same Suzanne Hansen she works with, if indeed “Suzy” is short for “Suzanne,” unless Suzy Hansen was formerly a lactation consultant, labor/delivery nurse, married mother of two and former nanny for the onetime super-agent Mike Ovitz. I guess it’s possible.
