-Dash-     December 21st   Imagine this:   You''re in your favorite bookstore, scanning the shelves. You get to the section where a favorite author''s books reside, and there, nestled in comfortably between the incredibly familiar spines, sits a red notebook.   What do you do?   The choice, I think, is obvious:   You take down the red notebook and open it.   And then you do whatever it tells you to do.       It was Christmastime in New York City, the most detestable time of the year. The moo-like crowds, the endless visits from hapless relatives, the ersatz cheer, the joyless attempts at joyfulness--my natural aversion to human contact could only intensify in this context. Wherever I went, I was on the wrong end of the stampede. I was not willing to grant "salvation" through any "army." I would never care about the whiteness of Christmas. I was a Decemberist, a Bolshevik, a career criminal, a philatelist trapped by unknowable anguish--whatever everyone else was not, I was willing to be.

About the Author

Rachel Cohn & David Levithan have written three books together. Their first, Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, was made into a movie starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings, directed by Peter Sollett. Their second, Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List, was named a New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age. For their third book, Dash & Lily's Book of Dares, David wrote Dash's chapters and Rachel wrote Lily's. Although they did not pass the chapters back and forth in a red Moleskine notebook, they did email them to each other without planning anything out beforehand. That's the way they work.

Rachel's previous books include Gingerbread, Shrimp, Cupcake, You Know Where to Find Me, and Very LeFreak. David's previous books include Boy Meets Boy, The Realm of Possibility, Are We There Yet?, Wide Awake, Love Is the Higher Law, and How They Met, and Other Stories.

For more information about Rachel and David, you can find them at RachelCohn.com and DavidLevithan.com, respectively. You may also catch them in the aisles at the Strand.
