A Loss Worth Celebrating


This week there was a lot of book buzz—and not the Michael Wolff kind. On Wednesday I was thrilled to attend the launch of Anjali Kumar's Stalking God, which chronicles her hilarious and inspirational journey to find meaning.

And last night was the annual Business Book Awards. Drop the Ball was longlisted in the Personal Development category, but the book that took home the prize was Janesville: An American Story by Amy Goldstein. It was only the second time that a woman won the award, and it was well deserved. Goldstein is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who has spent three decades at the Washington Post. I'll lose to her any day. Best moment was celebrating the night with Nilofer Merchant and Jennifer Romolini whose books The Power of Onlyness and Weird in a World That's Not were also nominated.
