[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. I'm the author, with Jed Z. Buchwald (Caltech) of THE ZODIAC OF PARIS, about the fortunes of an Egyptian antiquity smuggled into 19th-century Paris, forthcoming in 2010 from Princeton University Press. As for fiction: 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 compendium of obscenity masquerading as a book of short stories, called MALEDICTION (well, what would you call it?), and I'm working on a new book, THE HAPPY ENDING PROVISION & SUPPLY CO., in which I retell certain beloved children's stories from unexpected points of view. I also write about fun things to see and do in London and New York City for Metrotwin, a project of British Airways. Follow me on Facebook : Twitter.
