Speaking of Gothamist, they've got an interview with Ron Hogan, who writes about books on his litblog Beatrice, co-edits Mediabistro's Galleycat, and has written the fab gift-ready coffee table book: The Stewardess is Flying the Plane! American Films of the 1970s. Which features Karen Black on the cover, which should tell you all you need to know.
