From the "Too Much Information" Department...

This headline was taken straight from Publishers Marketplace:

New Albom to be Unveiled at the Show

Obviously this is in reference to the new novel by Mitch Albom, which he apparently completed late last night and Hyperion is shoehorning into their fall lineup to debut at BEA.

Althought I have no doubt any book by Albom will sell millions of copies and inspire a CBS "Movie of the Week" starring Hank Azaria, I'm not sure I want to see anything of Albom's "unveiled."

I see enough of him every Sunday on "The Sports Reporters," so I'll take my new Albom veiled, thank you very much.

I love his column but hate his books. He's done a couple of plays around here though that are hilarious without an ounce of sap in them. His book on the Fab Five from UM is my favorite sports book EVER.

It's so strange that a guy who was one of the preeminent sports journalists of his generation would become the most famous creator of Hallmark movies ever.

On a funny note, Warner, which published Albom's fab five book, TURNED DOWN "Tuesdays With Morrie" because they didn't think it would sell.

I'm waiting for Peter Vecsey to jump on the sappy bandwagon...
