CATARACT CITY OPTIONED FOR FILM

Hello All,

Some great news came over the transom yesterday. Gavin O'Connor—the filmmaker perhaps best known for Warrior, the fantastic Tom Hardy/Joel Edgerton film*, but who has had a hand in many great projects—and his production partner have optioned Cataract City.

This, obviously, is a wonderful thing to have happened. There's really not much else to say, because it's just happened. I'm incredibly pleased and grateful. And—with the permission of the other involved parties—I may comment on it here from time to time.

* It also starred Frank Grillo, who I loved in both Warrior and The Grey. And of course Nick Nolte, who earned a Best Supporting Actor nod.

I'll leave you with the final scene from Warrior, with the song from The National that played over it.


All best, 
Craig.

CATARACT CITY CANADIAN PAPERBACK

Hello All,

Behold, the Cataract City trade PB, juxtaposed beside my son's half-eaten breakfast. What a punk that boy is! His Mom makes a tasty breakfast, toast and peanut butter and 'nannas, and the boy picks at it like a crow! The book looks great, however.


All best, Craig.

INTERVIEW WITH NICK CUTTER

Hello All,

I gotta admit, this dude's growing on me a bit. He's still a human monster, you understand, but even monsters deserve a little love I guess.

LIFESTYLES OF THE MODESTLY-MONIED AND LITTLE-KNOWN

Hello All,

Here's a piece on my fiancee and I's lavish house and our equally lavish lifestyle. I know everyone's dying to see what the house of a writer looks like, so ... feast your eyes. You can't see very well in the photos, but our walls are wallpapered in $100 bills. And our floors are pure gold. And delicious Fresca pours from our taps instead of dreary, cheap water. Yes, we truly do live the life of earthbound gods. Are you jelly? Yeah, you're jelly.

Many thanks to Marcy Cornblum for doing the interview!


All best, Craig.

CATARACT CITY OUT IN THE UK TODAY

Hello All,

A big box o' these bad boys showed up yesterday:


... so go ye forth, and purchase! I mean, if you want to and you happen to live in the UK, that is; I don't expect you to book a flight over there to go buy a copy—that would be madness!


All best, Craig.
