Quote of the Day (Sloane Crosley, on Nutty Book-Tour Questions)

“Amid the book-related questions, I’ve been asked to call someone’s mother for them, when to reach out to an estranged friend, if I can hook them up with an apartment in Manhattan, if I can get them in touch with David Sedaris, my darkest secret, tips for overcoming depression, when malaria pills expire, how about just David Sedaris’s email then, if they paid too much for this dress, if I want to get married, if I think they should get married.”—Essayist Sloane Crosley, on the perils of author tours, excerpted in John Williams, “Stories From the Road,” The New York Times, July 26, 2015
