July 2, 2018: Joan, Maggie, and Judi would really like you to read my latest piece—an essay this time—for the New York Times Book Review; in “Bob Dylan and Will Smith: Children’s Authors?,” I tackle a major existential conundrum of our times: do pop song lyrics have any business being picture-book texts? The piece is going to run in the Sunday Times book review dated July 8, but it’s available online today, right here. Happy now? You know I am.
