My internship is rewarding and joyless by turns. Most workdays involve phoning publishers, requesting review copies of books, fact checking, probably a burrito, maybe a mail run. Today I was asked to contribute a few entries to a fake bibliography that’s part of a forthcoming book. The biblio runs fully 5 pages, not including my additions, and half the titles have nothing whatever to do with the book. Favoritest assignment so far.
