We all do it a few times per day: shooting a friend a text message with our phones. Doing so has become routine and we don't really think about it: just grab your device, hold it up, and type a few...

There are some deep existential issues that keep me up in the middle of the night. Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? And, perhaps most importantly… ARE CATS FREELANCERS?? This is a serious debate, one that First Lieutenant Meowzer and I have discussed at length. Below is my definitive list of points and counterpoints. The world cannot delay on this pressing issue: scholars, philosophers, and leaders must gather together and determine ...

@KirkerButler on what authors can learn from TV writers! #PrettyUgly @StMartinsPress @Kab0207 

"Something else you can do while writing your novel is ask network executives to give you notes to create problems that didn't exist before. This will be a nice writing exercise that won't help you become a better writer or write a better book, but it will give the ten to twenty other writers you're working with something to complain about. The executives will also offer helpful writing tips like, 'start the story earlier,' or 'make sure your main character is good at their job.' Characters being good at their jobs is very important to network executives."
I started writing for TV thirteen years ago, and in that time I've worked on five different shows and been a part of nearly three hundred scripts. I started writing my first novel, Pretty Ugly (available March 31st), seven and a half years ago, an...

@BarneyFrank says reviewer wanted a "50 Shades of Frank" memoir!@fsgbooks @thedailybeast @EleanorClift 

DB: I think you’re pretty candid about the shame you felt.

BF: The book is called Frank. He thought the title was too short, it should have been 50 Shades of Frank.

DB: I still have my tape recorder on, but I probably shouldn’t use that…

BF: Oh, no, I’m looking to get that out …
The former Massachusetts congressman didn’t call his new memoir ‘Frank’ for nothing. He dishes to The Daily Beast about Hillary, Aaron Schock, outing himself, and more.

A ‪#‎FRANK‬ interview with @BarneyFrank! @fsgbooks @SarahToce @TheSeaLesbian
“I was scared beforehand. I do think it turned out that I was more scared than obviously I should have been. But I am proud. Look, I wish I had [come out] sooner, but the fact is I was the first member of Congress to do it voluntarily. Yeah, I’m proud of having done that. Kind of like I screwed up on the courage and I jumped off, and it turns out that it was only a six-foot jump and not a 20-foot jump, but, you know, I didn’t know that when I jumped,” he reflected.
Having been at the forefront of American politics for over five decades, there’s little that still surprises Frank…except the Tea Party.

Read an excerpt of #FRANK and listen to the @nprfreshair interview!@BarneyFrank @fsgbooks        

"We have made so much progress in diminishing homophobia. It was based on a wholly unreal, inaccurate prejudice and people say, 'Which tactic, which thing most defeated prejudice?' [It was] the simple act of coming out, by millions of us, because our reality just defeated the prejudice." 
In his new memoir, Frank describes how early in politics he feared people would "draw inferences" if he supported gay rights. But his drive to fight discrimination was stronger.
