Jennifer Egan Gets Shout Out on Gossip Girl

Last night on Gossip Girl (yes, I watch Gossip Girl), Jennifer Egan got a shout-out. For those who don’t know, Jennifer Egan is a  fiction writer whose novel A Visit From the Goon Squad won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction. She’s also a former student of the Writer’s Studio where I take classes.

The scene went like this: Dan Humphry, the young literary virtuoso whose novel just came out as a smashing success, is walking down the street with his agent. She’s telling him to break off his relationship with Serena whose blog isn’t literary enough for him to be associated with. She says, “Publishers see you as Jennifer Egan or Chad Harbach.”

Ten points for Gossip Girl.
