Also, for anyone in NYC who wants EM20 and doesn't want to wait around for Amazon, you can pick up the book at Bookmarc in NYC (400 Bleecker St.). Three friends sent me photos of the book on display there.
Check out Blue Smoke: Intimate Disclosures in Poetry & Prose (Outskirts Press, $17.95), a book by Craig A. Combs, who was a close buddy of mine until I moved away after third grade. I went looking for him and we re-connected over mis-remembered memories and our divergent paths in life. Well, not so divergent after all: We both just put out memoirs!
In his book, he reproduces some of the letters he sent me as a kid, which I, of course, saved faithfully because I'm warped like that.
Keith Caulfield—who appears in Encyclopedia Madonnica 20—graciously interviewed me on the topic of the book's release. He says, helpfully:
Stumped on what to get the Madonna fan in your life for the holidays? How about the 581-page, 4-pound Madonna bible Encyclopedia Madonnica? The massive tome was written by Madonna expert Matthew Rettenmund and covers everything in Madonna’s world from A (the first entry is Abdul, Paula) through Z (zits -- yes, really).
Get your copy today through me, at Amazon (it's not really out of stock; you can still order and it comes quickly), at BN.com, at Marc Jacobs' Bookmarc (400 Bleecker St., NYC, NY) or anywhere else you usually buy books.
Read Keith's profile of me and my book at Billboard here. I'm over the moon about this one.
