Today I'm doing a little celebrating myself--of New York, the city that inspired Catherine. But instead of paying homage to big iconic sights, like the Empire State Building, I would like to share a few smaller NYC moments, for instance this chandelier at the Angelika Film Center, one of the world's best places to see an indie film:
And this still life, at the Union Square Greenmarket:
Also glimpsed on Elizabeth Street: little girl plus even littler doorway equals an Alice-in-Wonderland Moment.
And this pause between phrases: keyboardist/vocalist/guitarist Michelle Casillas, at Bowery Electric. (Bowery Electric was my model for The Underground, the legendary Lower East Side nightclub where Catherine is set.)
The new edition of Catherine comes out on August 19. Look for it on the shelves of a bookstore near you!
