Got Your Number

Looking for the next David Sedaris or Nora Ephron? On NPR’s Web site, Heather McAlpin says that Sloane Crosley, whose second book of essays, How Did You Get This Number came out last month, is on her way to joining those authors who write “Humorous personal essays, spiked with sparkling observations and mordant opinions served up in carefully calibrated cocktails of self-absorption and self-deprecation…”

Last month USA Today made their own comparisons,”her prose lands somewhere between the stand-up comedy of Kathy Griffin and Bridget Jones’s Diary.” The article also mentions that Sloane’s first collection, I Was Told There Would be Cake is being developed as an HBO series. The SF Chronicle notes that the pilot has just been completed.

Libraries are showing heavy holds.
