Back on the scene

MorningHey, folks--

I've been out of commission for the last week.  I suspect I'll feel up to telling the full story about that in a while, but for now, let me just say I'm back!  And happy to be here.

There's a lot going on in the world that I'm going to have comments about.  For the moment, let me just record the fact that my writing is getting attention from famous people named Andrew:

--Andrew Solomon (author of Far from the Tree*) mentioned me in passing in a piece in The New Yorker.

--And then Andrew Sullivan (a blogger that one of my friends who shall remain nameless has a kind of obsessive love for) mentioned the Andrew Solomon piece.

Let me tell you, my latest Motherlode essay has really gotten a lot of attention.  I think we've finally stabilized at 463 comments.

More soon!

*Andrew Solomon only had a tiny bit to say about me, in passing, but I've written several things about Far from the Tree:


  1. obsessive love is not quite right -- I am obsessed, that is true, but it is a more agonistic relationship than love. He posts a ton, and that is good; and he annoys me, which is interesting. And he and I are two of the few people to have written about Michael Oakeshott.....

  2. Wow. I'm very, very impressed!
