How Did You Get This Number

Author Sloane Crosley Talks Trash, TV, and Tartine

Sloane Crosley may hail from New York, but any young urbanite can empathize with her exploits. Whether she's embarking on a disastrous trip to Portugal in an attempt to be more spontaneous, trying to find the perfect apartment, or riding in a really smelly cab, Crosley projects an air of good-natured haplessness that appeals to the klutz inside all of us. Her first book of essays, I Was Told There'd Be Cake, was a New York Times bestseller and was optioned by HBO; the sequel, How Did You Get This Number, has just been released in paperback.
