i-was-told-thered-be-cakeEssays from a local New Yorker who has the quirkiest and strangest life experiences to have ever hit a page find themselves collected and bound in I Was Told There’d be Cake.  Sloane Crosley has written essays for New York Times, Village Voice, and Salon.  Released last April 2008, I Was Told There’d be Cake is a lovable compilation of stories ranging from Sloane’s odd collection of  plastic pony’s to baking a cake in the shape of her boss’ face.  Her voice in the book is said to feel a little like David Sedaris, Carrie Bradshaw, and Dorothy Parker, but the best part about this little piece of literary brilliance is its Sloane Crosley’s.  Keep your eye out for this woman, with a debut book this good I can hardly wait for what the future brings.  Grab I was Told there’d be Cake at your nearest bookshop because your collection won’t be complete without it.
