MORE POPPA GYLLENHAAL INFO

So, I complied all your wonderful questions together and sent them off to Ms Christopher yesterday. Hopefully Mr Gyllenhaal got his hands on them this morning and will take about two weeks to get back to us. Ms Christopher described him as 'distracted', which sounds fantasically eccentric, so we have to be patient. A few people asked questions that can be answered now:

Any questions regarding how Stephen found his publisher can be read over at www.stephengyllenhaal.com. You can also subscribe to the Cantarabooks newsletter for all the juicy gossip and helpful hints about getting into the book business.

A lot of people asked about where Stephen would be doing readings. Cantara tells me that he hopes to do a reading in the UK with Graham Swift (this made me squee inside) and also maybe Minneapolis, Chicago, Boston, and Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts.

For Maxine who asked about an audio version - Cantara writes, "Stephen still holds all audio and dramatic rights to his work but would be interested in releasing his poetry in spoken form, and possibly even as a stage or film work."

And for malingranger's sister - Stephen directed Jake in the 'Rock the Vote' advertisement campaign. You can see it HERE along with Maggie's ad.

Finally, I'd like to thank my roomie Anneka for her questions that, unfortunately, didn't make the final cut:
1. Which one of your kids do you love more, Maggie for giving you a grandchild or Jake for his Oscar nomination?
2. "Fuzzy Wuzzy Was A Bear" is my favourite poem. What's yours?
3. How upset were you when Heath left Jake for Jen off Dawson's Creek?
4. What rhymes with orange?
5. Could you please tell Jake to wear his long socks more often?
6. Lex and Lana on Smallville - hot or not?
