Spotted: A Changed Man by Francine Prose
Who was reading: A slender woman with shorn brown hair topped by a swath of bleached blonde curtaining her face.
Publishers Weekly says: "Prose tests assumptions about class, hatred and the possibility of change in her latest novel, a good-natured satire of liberal pieties, the radical right and the fund-raising world. . . . doesn't shy away from exposing the vanities and banalities behind the drive to do good."
Speaking of the vanities and banalities behind the drive to do good... Anyone know what PETA's been up to lately? Better grab your copy of "The Art of Cockfighting" now before those do-gooders spoil the party.
