Not April Fool's

Via Maud Newton:

A New York Daily News article about how Jonathan Safran Foer is asking his friends to buy his new book now:

In an E-mail to "Friends, Romans, Countrymen," Foer acknowledged some tough reviews and added, "So I'm going to have to rely heavily on word of mouth."

He described last week as "very, very important for the book. Perhaps the most important week."

He added: "If you were thinking of buying a book, or know people who haven't bought books but are intending to, this, right now, is the time to do it."

Sounds like an April Fools prank but apparently isn't; the reporter checked with Foer...
