media spotting

Ed Park manages to work a mention of THE JANE AUSTEN BOOK CLUB into a short column about books with really long names. It's an aside issue:

There's also a subgenre to this effusiveness, specimens for which text becomes texture; you can judge these books, at least a little, by their covers. The sleeve of David Denby's American Sucker breaks up the first 75 words in stock-ticker fashion, and the bound proof of Karen Joy Fowler's forthcoming The Jane Austen Book Club has a similar inside-out conceit.
