[narcissism, vanity, exhibitionism, ambition, vanity, vanity, vanity]
WHO'S RESPONSIBLEHi! I'm Diane Greco, and you are looking at my seven year-old exercise in narcissism, vanity, exhibitionism, ambition, vanity, vanity, and, of course, vanity.
More specifically, here is where I stash links, funny ideas, stories about my kid, notes on what I'm reading, practical reflections, reports from other places, e.g., Russia, Japan, China, Paris, and Iceland, and other miscellaneous junk.
I am a writer. That's me, right there, writing in a restaurant. I've just finished a novel, EASY JOURNEYS TO OTHER PLANETS, about a group of friends hailing from the deceptive, complicated fastnesses of middle America, who struggle to come of age during 1967's Summer of Love. I've also got a collection of short stories concerning generally unreliable DICTATION (is there any other kind?), and a nonfiction book about the fortunes of an Egyptian antiquity smuggled into 19th-century Paris. I also write about fun things to see and do in London and New York City for Metrotwin, a project of British Airways. Caveat lector: this blog's free, including free of advertising. Comments are open; we'll see how this goes. Email at ping DOT diane AT gmail DOT com.
