Ann Curry, Cannes, China, boobs, butts, food and other stuff

Ann Curry is covering Cannes Film Festival for the Today Show. Quelle horreur! Someone please keep her away from On the Road and Cosmopolis.

Cosmopolis. Discuss.

This @time writer liked author Don DeLillo’s new short story collection, The Angel Esmerelda, better than other DeLillo works including Cosmopolis.

Thin works like The Body Artist, Cosmopolis and The Falling Man looked more like stocking stuffers than proper novels, and they read worse. 

Have you read Cosmopolis, and if so, did you read it before Rob Pattinson was cast in the film or after?

What was your take on the novel?
