With his newest book about to be released (The Ask), Sam Lipsyte is everywhere. 

Shalom Auslander is also popping up all over the place, and we really can’t complain about that.  He has a piece in the newest issue of GQ which sadly is not up on the net, so you will have to go and buy the magazine.  When was the last time you did that?  Over at Tablet, he talks about what we can only assume are a handful of the thousands of adoring female fans he has all over the globe.  Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals finally makes its way to the UK this month.  Granta interviews him.  I’m willing to bet that Michael Chabon would make a great father.  He talks about it at The Guardian. Chabon is also mentioned along with Jonathan Lethem as Jewish writers who write "fantasy literature". Ben Greenman on The Carpenters Alicia Jo Rabins of the bands Girls in Trouble and Golem is guest blogging at Ploughshares.
