Welcome to the new home of Hannigan Salky Getzler. It's nice to see the sign on the wall. Our new old building is from 1905, and is the former site of an art school. As a result, the place feels like a bit of a Parisian Garret (I'm waiting to see Mimi and Rodolfo show up, freezing and consumptive, with cheap wine). But it's whitewashed and bright, with a skylight and a view of Broadway, and feels like a great place to find great books and sell them (to the big Six...er, four...er, three...). We have terrific officemates in A-Line Pictures, the production company behind Capote and Monsoon Wedding. And we have Zabar's across the street!
So, this day and a half before Thanksgiving, I am thankful to be uptown. I am thankful for authors and editors and other agents. I am thankful that we were safe during Sandy (though I am so sorry for the continuing suffering of my friends and colleagues downtown and in Staten Island and other affected areas). And I am thankful for health, friends, colleagues, clients and family. See you next week, during the period that the Rugrats famously called "Between Christmas and Misgivings."
