We'd be more ashamed of promoting our contributors' work around here if, goshdarnit, we weren't so proud of them. The latestĀ A.V. Club writer to do something awesome: T.V. Club regular Claire Zulkey. And what's she done? Why, this:

That's An Off Year, a young-adult novel (but grown-ups can read it too) about what happens when a promising young woman decides she wants nothing to happen for a while. Obviously, we can't review this book. But that doesn't mean others haven't. In fact, Time Out ChicagoĀ called it "a cautionary tale, lightweight but sharply written" and said it "will make for a nicely double-edged graduation present."Ā Or, you know, Christmas present, since that's a lot sooner, right?
