The "Unreal" Edition
Not only do I like the anagram, I am amazed that I have never pondered what other words I could come up with given the six letters of my first name. Some would say, that’s unreal!
Unreal is a good word. It has lots of meanings, some of which i hope to not be associated with, like those more on the side of, um, being not true, aka lying. But most others of which I think are phenomenal. Unreal, even!
Thinking about it, it would be a good title for the Book That I Will Likely Never Write. A hidden anagram is cool. But also referring to my media career which spans the very unreal fiction/narrative form of movies and the very very real of tv.
Because you subscribe to this newsletter, now you will get the inside joke if that book gets published and you can let me know at The Strand book signing that you remember February 2022 when the idea first hit. This will be so far in the future that we won’t take a selfie after I sign your copy, but rather we’ll be catapulted into some sort of VR/AR metaverse, turned into a digital image and NFT’d into a blockchain universe stored on Bezos’ rocketship. Which will be fine because that’s likely very boring and you’d be there for a long time so you’ll have plenty of time to read the book.

Happy March — though if April is the cruelest month then March—at least in New York City— is downright sadistic!
P.S. One other naming-fun-fact: For a while during my adolescence, I practiced figuring out friends’ first and last names backwards, in my head, and referring to them that way with certain very close friends and family members. It allowed me one other realization for my name which is the first five letters of my last name is a palindrome. Do yours right now. A) You might agree, it’s hard to do in your head B) I bet there will be something cool about it!
