Ann Beattie blurb

I just received this blurb for my forthcoming novel, Memphis Movie. I am humbled and a bit frightened. You know?

“I have long suspected, because of my hubris, that I would discover the lost continent of Atlantis.  Little did I know that it would turn out to be a movie.  And what an amazing one, very unique and persuasive and strange and sometimes quite funny, written and directed by this original, clever, funny writer – who is now also a star.”
Ann Beattie , author of Chilly Scenes of Winter and The New Yorker Stories.  —

      I know. I feel like I have to live up to the blurb. She wrote me a 2nd email yesterday with further praise for the novel and telling me she was passing it on to a friend to read. In my dreams that friend is Don DeLillo. I know they are close.
