Just a few bits I found especially interesting…
Roger Boylan, who reviewed the Follett book, writes: “The giants of the title, the crowned heads of Europe, are solidly ensconced in their palaces when the story begins in 1911 but all gone (except King George V of Britain) when it ends, in 1924. In between, various upheavals remake the world, affording plenty of scope for action, and Follett takes full advantage of this opportunity.”
I’m a Follett fan anyway. Add royalty and scandal and I’m blissed…
Next, Rita Konig had a wonderful piece in the Wall Street Journal. The WSJ has been ramping up its lifestyle coverage and, wisely, grabbed some of the former Domino staffers to help out…
Rita writes about interior designer Todd Romano’s
decidedly “Unoffice-y Office.”

There’s also a very cool virtual tour:
It looks better in person so visit it here.
Finally, we went to see The Social Network. I LOVED it…Rooney Mara (who was recently cast as the lead in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) stole the opening scene playing Mark Zuckerberg’s girlfriend. (Her character’s name is Erica Albright and there’s
much discussion at the moment about whether or not Ms Albright actually exists.)
Anyway, Rooney is gorgeous (various Wireimage photos below) and I can’t wait to see her in Dragon…
Ok, that’s all from me…Have a lovely Monday everyone. I’ll be back here tomorrow night!
