Ed McClanahan has written a lot of books. He is also wickedly funny. According to one reviewer, “The effect of reading Ed McClanahan’s new collection, O the Clear Moment, is not unlike listening to a cheerfully erudite, slightly drunken old man reminiscing about his seemingly average life—a life that becomes, in the generosity and intelligence of the telling, something more than average.”
So why isn’t he being featured in the Nonfiction section this week like he is supposed to be? Well, we goofed. Luckily, he’s agreed to come back for the week of March 22. This time, we don’t intend to goof. Slightly drunken old men can turn on a dime, you know.
