    Congrats Jeff-that’s great news for you. (not to mention being published by Farrar Straus!)

    Congrats Jeff. Just super awesome news. (I was out on a 5 mile hike around a nuclear reactor cooling tower when you posted this, thinking about the first book as I crossed past very scary “beyond this point is subject to emergency evacuation” signs.) Fingers crossed for an eventual production date and what should be a fantastic film.

    Congratulations, Jeff! We met at the Odyssey Workshop when you and Ann visited—thus, I can say “I knew him when!”
