Worst Things Have Happened


So today I got my alumni magazine– the same magazine I so dorkily wrote and called and basically begged to be included in. It is also the same magazine to whom I mentioned my awesome friend Alina Simone and her amazing new book.

Recently Alina and I were chatting and I said she’d probably get a five page spread in ye old Tufts Alumni mag and I’d get like a “Joselin Linder, co98 would like to announce the publication of her new book.”

“Why?” she asked.

“Because I want it too bad,” I replied.

“You want to be in the Tufts Alumni magazine so badly that it will crush you to not be in there?”

Silence. Eyes welling. Or at least something like that.

Anyway, I was wrong. (Scroll all the way down to the bottom about 2/3rds of the way through “Other Books of Note.” Thanks Tufts Alumni Mag!)

And also right.

But Alina’s book is hilarious and I’m so very very proud of her. Now, I Must Go and Win! :)

Joselin Linder has been shipwrecked on the western-most point of Long Island, also known as Brooklyn, since the early part of the Millennium. Since then she has mostly been a writer with some filmmaking on the side. She is pleased to have been stranded all these years with her man, her dog and an unlimited supply of box-o-wine. Johann David Wyss, although dead now for almost two hundred years, once wrote a very popular and well-respected book about survival. A pastor and a scholar, it is unlikely he would find this bastardization of his great work at all amusing – But here’s hopin'!
For many days we had been tempest tossed and our stash was soaked...We were driven completely off course with no conjecture as to our whereabouts. "Dude, where’s our island?"

If I was trapped on a desert island, I would bring...
