Cary Tennis: Since You Asked Becomes Book


Salon’s Cary Tennis has a book deal, but not for the novel he’s been writing since whenever. It’s a collection of his Since You Asked columns, and here’s his whimsical request:

In which the Author asks his Devoted Readers to name their Favorite Columns, in order that those columns might appear in a Book.

Even though he’s been answering letters for years, many of the readers’ suggestions include more recent columns, including the bare down there one.

And Stan Accrington suggests:

Include a few columns where you screwed up with some lousy advice (not hard to find), and much better advice was forthcoming from readers

FBLA doesn’t ask for advice, doesn’t give advice (except to the LA Times) and doesn’t invite readers to comment. Thanks.
