Peggy Payne

by Lisa Rosen on October 18, 2011

My mentor, Peggy Payne*, had an essay in Sunday’s New York Times.  It’s a lovely piece, and I’m over-the-moon excited for her.  I think being published in the “paper of record” is pretty good vindication, don’t you?

Revenge is sweet, indeed.

*I’m a little embarrassed to use the word mentor.  It feels like I’m saying “Hello!  I think you’re totally awesome and I want to sit at your feet and soak up everything you say!”  And while that’s not something I’d ever say to anyone’s face, it is, in this case, exactly what I feel, so there you have it.  I am owning my awkward adoration.

You have read Sister India, haven’t you?  If not, go get it right now.  You’ll love it.

WAIT — one more comment: When and if I ever get off my booty and write more than 10 pages of a book — I would absolutely consider YOU my mentor because this right here: “Hello! I think you’re totally awesome and I want to sit at your feet and soak up everything you say!” — is pretty much how I feel about you! I can’t wait to see you in a few weeks!
