Seeking Assistant Pantload:
Help Wanted [Jonah Goldberg]
I’m gonna need a meticulous, smart, diligent intern/assistant type to help me with the house-cleaning on my manuscript. In particular, I need someone to help get my copious footnotes and the like in order. There will also be some serious research-related stuff to do as we head into galley mode. It would be best if he or she â€” or conceivably it â€” went to school or worked in the DC area so we could meet from time to time. I haven’t thought through the money question, but you can be assured it won’t be lavish. But what’s filthy lucre compared to a glowing mention in the acknowledgements and my eternal gratitude? Anyway, anybody interested in said gig should send an email with appropriate info (resume, experience, dancing ability etc) to JonahResearch@aol.com.
It’s scheduled to be out 9/11/2007 and, God (if there is one) knows that transfering all of his “copious footnotes” from the assorted Quiznos and Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits napkins is going to be a bitch. I’m not sure that there are too many people who are going to want the “glowing mention in the acknowledgements”. That’s like being credited with arranging the corn in the poop.
That’s probably a poor analogy.
