On the Books Mar. 29: Perez Hilton's children's book, the secret life of editing 'Harry Potter,' and more

Perez-Hilton

Perez Hilton, the bad boy of celebrity blogging, has written a children’s book, The Boy with the Pink Hair, set for a September 2011 release. Dare we say the protagonist of the story, a boy with a “shock of fabulous hair,” is at least loosely based on the author? The book promises to “celebrate individuality and acceptance.” Hilton has written two previous books for adults, Perez Hilton’s True Bloggywood Stories and Red Carpet Suicide: A Survival Guide on Keeping Up with the Hiltons.

Radiohead is launching The Universal Sigh, an unconventional international newspaper, containing voice-driven pieces and work by writers such as Robert McFarlane and Jay Griffiths.

Susan Jeffers discusses the top-secret, high-stakes task of being a copy editor for the Harry Potter series.

Jean Auel concludes her prehistoric saga The Land of Painted Caves with a sixth installment.
