Holiday Reading
Posted by: Keir Graff

If you’ve been thinking that I haven’t been posting as much as usual lately, you’re right. A combination of new initiatives (watch for a new newsletter, Booklist Online REaD ALERT, in early January) and sleep deprivation (I’ve been talking to my younger son about this) have taken a toll on my blogging. I’m hoping this will be a short-lived situation. Although I am taking all of next week off.

As I depart for the bosom of my family, please accept this humble holiday gift of–me. (I know, I know, even tinsel and ribbons can’t disguise Shameless Self-Promotion.)┬áI have a short story, “If You Should Have Any Need at All,” in the Chicago Reader‘s annual fiction issue. And if you should have any need for a little Graff prose next week…well, here you go.

    That cartoon doesn’t do you justice. You are way cuter in person. Merry, Happy, Jolly and Fruitcake!

  2. Pete Says:

    Nice story – at first darkly comic, finishing with a very grim twist.

  3. Keir Says:

    From dark to grim…I have quite a range, don’t I? Thanks, Pete!
