NYR: ross raisin

From Ross Raisin, author of Out Backward and owner of the best accent I’ve ever heard:

What was the best book of the year? The Wolf, Joseph Smith.

What was the best movie? Il y a longtemps que je t’aime.

What was the best song/album? Not sure what their album is called, but the one by a band called Daisy, Kit and Lewis

Favorite Blog? I still don’t really understand fully what a blog is.

Who was the person of the year? Boris Johnson. Just kidding. Obama.

What is your New Year’s resolution? Not to let anything get in the way of writing.
