Sloane Crosley: TOP TEN BOOKS
Courtesy of Caitlin Mitchell
Best known for her three collections of essays, I Was Told There’d Be Cake (a finalist for the 2008 Thurber Prize for American Humor), How Did You Get This Number, and Look Alive Out There, Sloane Crosley began her career helping other authors find an audience as a publicist for Vintage Books. She has also published a novel, The Clasp, a tribute to Guy Maupassant’s 1884 short story “The Necklace.” “I knew I had a novel in me, I just didn’t know what the story was,” she told Esquire magazine. “I wanted to make sure I wasn’t going to write some roman à clef about a bunch of kids living in Brooklyn.” Rest assured, she hasn’t.
