Book Sold

Congratulations to Awl pal Jessica Grose, who has sold her debut novel to William Morrow. (That link is subscription-only, so know this: Sad Desk Salad is "told from the voice of a popular blogger who chronicles the rise and fall of her big scoop, where she must reconcile her values with the growing (ruthless) demands of a gossip- and reality-obsessed culture," but Jess assures us it is not a Devil Wears Prada kind of thing.)

Ugh, has "reality" finally and irrevocably come to mean "not reality"? I WISH our culture was a little more "reality-obsessed," if you know what I mean.

(This "ugh" is not aimed at Awl pal Jessica Grose or any other current or future Awl pal, unless an Awl pal wrote that marketing copy, in which case I say "ugh" to them.)

Thanks guys! and @jfruh I didn't write the copy so this grateful awl pal is not insulted.
