(Resuming Twitter break ahora.)
"'You’re a very attractive woman. He can’t help himself.'" @helendewitt on being stalked (and pooh-poohed): lrb.co.uk/v36/n16/helen-…
Taking a Twitter break until the end of August or until I cave. Have a wonderful rest of the summer, everyone.
You can pre-order a signed copy of @EmilyMandel's also-wonderful "Station Eleven" from @wordbookstores. emilymandel.com/stationeleven.…

I'm regretfully leaving the column to focus on my book. Huge thanks, @NYTmag--hope I'll still be welcome sometimes! maudnewton.com/blog/farewell-…
My last @NYTmag mini-column is about writing, myth, genii, & Elizabeth Bachner's "How To Shake Hands With a Murderer" nyti.ms/1mV3Lid
Thinking of Laurie Anderson's comments (to @amandastern) about losing her dog, her constant physical companion: maudnewton.com/blog/laurie-an…
I spent the morning reading @EmilyMandel's gorgeous "Station Eleven," and petting our sad and confused other kitty.
Huge thanks for the sympathy. Someone mentioned a kitty-shaped hole in the universe, and that's how it feels to @bookofsand and me.
RIP Emily kitty (April 1, 1996 - July 25, 2014), my stubborn & beautiful little April Fool's Day Aries… instagram.com/p/q4gwKLBpJI/
Shout-out to friends who let you sob on the phone about your elderly cat's decline.
Oops! It's unlocked for me but mebbe I'm just logged in. RT @5redpandas: @maudnewton I thought NYer only unlocked going back to 2007.
(Twitter is making me so comma-careless! Spark's article appears in the unlocked NYer archives, where the Brontes did not, in fact, teach.)
Bookmarked for later reading: Muriel Spark on the Brontes as teachers in the unlocked @NewYorker archives newyorker.com/magazine/1966/…
"One Art" is perfect, but if Elizabeth Bishop wore glasses I'm impressed she didn't include hour blindly spent searching for them.
Which is to say: Hope to see you at @CommunityBkstr tonight at 7 pm when @chrisbeha reads from Arts & Entertainments & discusses it with me.
But now I'm working on a different book anyway, and I'm interviewing @chrisbeha tonight, so I read SW and wish I hadn't waited so long.
Put off reading @chrisbeha's Sophie Wilder when it came out lest I unwittingly steal from it. (See also @laurengrodstein's latest.)
