Intro for September 16, 2014

Dear Gossips,

I’ll Give You The Sun.

A new book by Jandy Nelson, available today and, with 3 months to go, quite possibly my favourite book of 2014. I’m telling you right now, clear your weekend because as soon as you start, you won’t want to do anything else. And then give yourself a few hours and read it all over again.

This is a story you want to rip through, because you care so much about Noah and Jude, you want to know what happens. At the same time, you’ll have to keep reminding yourself to sloowwwwww down. Because Nelson’s voice is so fresh and so full of …well, of everything…you won’t want to miss a single detail. And that’s what’s exciting. There are paragraphs in this book that are so f-cking good, so well-written and imaginative, the reading experience becomes a thrill-ride, when all you’re really doing is lying in bed with a book.

Go fall in love. Book love!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Once upon a time, Matt Damon went in hard against Bourne trilogy screenwriter Tony Gilroy. For a couple years he trash-talked Gilroy, taking no pains to hide his animosity, and said he’d never do another Bourne movie so long as Gilroy was involved. Full Story

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association confirmed yesterday that George Clooney will be the 2015 recipient of the Cecil B DeMille Award. You think they’re giving it to him on the just the work…and not because they want him to show up at their party? Come on. It’s the HFPA. Full Story
