Today, following a presentation at my local bookstore, I got to meet Jennifer Egan. I told her how much Look at Me (http://thebestbookever.blogspot.com/2011/11/look-at-me-by-jennifer-egan.html) meant to me, and how I could relate so much to both Charlotte, the main character, and to Irene, a sort of frumpy writer/academic type who writes about her. And she said it's her favorite of her books, and that it means the most to her of everything she's written.
too starstruck to yell eek or anything. I was so nervous I almost didn't get in the autograph line, but I'm glad I did.
