I'm skimming through a nice takedown of New Yorker writer Caitlin Flanagan--don't worry, there'll be plenty more; she has a book coming out--when I caught this mention of a novel called Goodnight Nobody, and I thought, "Hey, where are all the sweet oddball remixes and mashups of Goodnight Moon?"
Has no one ever thought to make a parody, or has everyone had the irony, humor, and drive to create something slightly off the hook drained out of them by the time they start reading the book? Because that'd be too bad. I'd think burned out parents everywhere would be clamoring to see a fire lit under the Goodnight Moon beast.
According to AmazonGoodnight Nobody, meanwhile:
...is bestselling author Jennifer Weiner's attempt at writing a mystery, with a healthy dose of the author's chick lit sensibilities thrown in for good measure. While this Desperate Housewives meets Sex in the City murder mystery won't make readers shake in their Manolo Blahniks, it will provide the obligatory humor and compassion to which fans of Weiner's Good in Bed, In Her Shoes, and Little Earthquakes have grown accustomed.OK... I think my question still stands.
