Van Booy: Stories Make a Room Look Good

By Neal Comment


Simon Van Booy celebrated the publication of his latest short story collection, Love Begins in Winter, with a reception at Partners and Spade, NoHo’s only-by-appointment deluxe thrift store/art gallery. The texts of stories like “Tiger, Tiger” and “The Missing Statues” formed a backdrop for the reading—and we’re told at least one person in the audience had a Flip video camera, so there’s a good chance we might all get to see it soon. In the meantime, Van Booy advocates the enjoyment of short fiction as part of a series of “public service announcements” from HarperPerennial authors.
