Adam Sternbergh on his favourite sentences, the book he always comes back to and more

theglobeandmail.com — Last year Adam Sternbergh, a Toronto-born journalist who currently resides in Brooklyn, N.Y., published his debut novel, Shovel Ready, a sci-fi/noir hybrid set in a near-future New York that has seen better days; its sequel, Near Enemy, arrived in bookstores this month. Both novels star Spademan, a garbage-collector-turned-hitman who is awfully precise with a box cutter.

Anti-Heroes: A panel discussion with Adam Sternbergh, Emily Nussbaum, A.O Scott, and Megan Abbot

mcnallyjackson.com — Start: 01/27/2015 7:00 pm Former New York Magazine Culture Editor Adam Sternbergh will celebrate the release of NEAR ENEMY, the dynamite follow-up to his beloved debut SHOVEL READY, and another lean noir thriller which returns us to a half-deserted New York dystopia, to the adventures of garbage-man turned unvarnished psychopath, Spademan, and to a corrupt, crime-ridden vision of the future far more plausible than we might think.

The Golden Age of American Paranoia

thedailybeast.com — It's an excellent time to be paranoid in America. The NSA is tracking your email. Your social network is running social experiments on you. A torture report reveals an intelligence community run amok, while a hostile foreign government hacked a studio and scuttled a major film release-or, maybe it was a bunch of hackers pretending to be a hostile government, which may be even more worrisome.

Wes Anderson’s Bow Tie -- Vulture

vulture.com — Whatever you think about individual omissions in this morning's Oscar nominations - from The Lego Movie to Ava DuVernay - there's a genuinely heartening theme developing over this awards season: the recognition and celebration of artistic obstinance, stubbornness, and foolhardy perseverance.

How to Fix the Oscars: Seeded Nominations!

vulture.com — The Oscars have a nomination problem, and Hollywood has a scheduling problem, and these two problems are interrelated, and both can be solved with the same simple fix. Let's start with the nomination problem: The Best Picture nomination process is broken, and recent efforts to tamper with it have only made it worse.

Yikes! SHOVEL READY ebook on sale for $1.99 (for a limited time)

adamsternbergh.com — Well, this may appeal to you: SHOVEL READY ebook is on sale this week for $1.99. (I've linked to Amazon for you Kindle-ites, but it's true wherever fine ebooks are sold.) That's just one dollar, plus ninety-nine additional cents. I'd say it's "no more than the price of something" but what even costs $1.99 anymore, EXCEPT THIS!!?!

Why In The World Should I Go To A Book Launch?

adamsternbergh.com — My lovely wife, Julia May Jonas, wrote a long, thoughtful, sweet, and frankly spot-on post about book launches on Facebook, in advance of my own book launch.

@stephycha Like everyone w/ a desk job, I've played Minesweeper. I just got v confused when I heard young kids were getting SUPER into it.

@stephycha Is this a bad time to mention that for a long time I thought Minecraft and Minesweeper were the same thing?

Go scroll back and read @stephycha's timeline and her account of being de-ranked as a world-class Minesweeper player. It's very good.
