It’s not every day that your book inspires some original music. We were floored when we saw this tweet from our friend, composer and jazz pianist extraordinaire Ethan Iverson.

We’re doubly pleased that Ethan picked up Idle Gossip at one of our favorite bookstores, the Poisoned Pen. Ethan, formerly music director for the Mark Morris Dance Group, has a new piece with the company currently on tour called The Look of Love, based on the music of the late master Burt Bacharach.

We got another lovely surprise when we tuned in to the latest episode of Ask Eddie, the Film Noir Foundation show cohosted by TCM’s Eddie Muller and the FNF’s Anne Hockens, only to hear Lillian and Edith being discussed in their conversation about female detectives.

Eddie has a terrific new book coming out next month called Eddie Muller’s Noir Bar: Cocktails Inspired by the World of Film Noir. Beautifully illustrated, informative, and boasting fifty cocktail recipes. Order your copy today!
