Exciting news courtesy of GalleyCat: Flavorpill favorite Sloane Crosley (author of I Was Told There’d Be Cake and How Did You Get This Number), who just last week announced that she was leaving her publicity job at Vintage and Anchor to pursue writing full-time, will be penning a weekly humor column for The Independent Magazine. This could be really big for her career; as fans of Helen Fielding know, Bridget Jones’s Diary began its life as an anonymous column in The Independent back in 1995. And Sloane is way funnier.
“I am consistently amazed and delighted when any American humour translates,” she said in the press release. “Either we’re all outrageously funny or Independent readers are the most generous and forgiving people on the planet.” Look for the first installment — which will be available online — to be published on December 11th.
