Now, here's what you're supposed to do...

Copy and paste, delete my answers and type in your answers. Then send this to a whole bunch of people you know INCLUDING the person who sent it to you.

The theory is that you will learn a lot of little known facts about those who know you. Remember to send it back to the person who sent it to you.

Fans of perhaps the world’s best-known cannibal won’t have to wait much longer: seven years after the publication of “Hannibal,” Thomas Harris has finally delivered a new novel featuring Dr. Hannibal Lecter, the serial killer most famously memorialized on film by Anthony Hopkins.



Hannibal Lecter to Drop By for Holiday Helpings

Fans of perhaps the world’s best-known cannibal won’t have to wait much longer: seven years after the publication of “Hannibal,” Thomas Harris has finally delivered a new novel featuring Dr. Hannibal Lecter, the serial killer most famously memorialized on film by Anthony Hopkins.

In a last-minute addition to its holiday-season list, Delacorte Press, an imprint of the Bantam Dell Publishing Group, is expected to announce today that it will publish “Hannibal Rising” on Dec. 5. The 356-page novel chronicles the early life of Dr. Lecter.

Mr. Harris just handed in the manuscript for “Hannibal Rising” last month, and Bantam is rushing to publish the book in time for the crucial holiday sales season. It also hopes to capitalize on the February 2007 release of the movie version of the new novel, for which Mr. Harris also wrote the screenplay. The movie, which is produced by the Dino De Laurentis Company and marketed by the Weinstein Company, stars Gaspard Ulliel, the French co-star of the 2004 film “A Very Long Engagement,” as the young Dr. Lecter.

preserving memory, of making transitory experience into something that can be handed down or carried with us, providing a shield against time, a salve for loss. Beauty and wonder are easily found in the strange and the far away, but the deepest, and perhaps most fragile, beauty often lies in the faces that are literally the most familiar and the lives to which we are bound by history, blood, and love."

Plan Would End Homeless 'Tent Cities'
