"What was the saddest moment of your life?"
"When I lost my first wife."
"How long ago was this?"
"40 years."
"What happened?"
"We were in the Peace Corps, and had gone to Ethiopia to teach English. We were stepping out of a van when a runaway police car barreled into us. I still think they did it on purpose."
"How old were you at the time?"
"Twenty one."


Here’s a rough mock-up of what the HONY book cover is going to look like. The actual HONY book will be a little bigger, and the jacket will come all the way to the edges, but you get the idea. I personally think it looks amazing. Actually teared up a bit when they gave it to me. It felt like I was holding a few years of my life in my hand.

The book is coming out in 6 months, on October 15th. But do me a favor— if you KNOW you’ll be getting one, and can spare $20, go ahead and preorder now. Bookstores order a long time in advance, so if we can demonstrate solid demand in these first few days, it will go a long way in determining the final success of the book.

Historically, nationwide booksellers have been a bit skeptical of both photography and city-centric books. I know HONY is different. You know HONY is different. But it would help a ton if we could SHOW that HONY is different by turning in great presale numbers. All the work I’ve seen so far is really exciting, and I promise that I’m working overtime to make sure it’s the best $20 that you’ll ever spend. As always, thanks so much for your support, and here it is:

Hardcover (I absolutely insisted.) 
300+ beautifully designed pages. 
400 total images. (320 of my favorites, 80 new)
Complete with stories and captions
Only $20.

Jesus, there is nothing like search feature on Tumblr? Just a Spotlight and “tags search”?



Tomorrow’s cover today: our cover in America notes that change is coming to Cuba at last. But the United States could do far more to encourage it.
