You’d think I’d be over the moon. But, the first thing that came to mind was that old Groucho Marx one liner: “I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member.” I was coming down with a case of Imposter Syndrome, a feeling of self-doubt in spite of accomplishments. At any moment I thought I’d get an email from Kirkus telling me that a mistake had been made and that the review was bogus. But, no such email has arrived.
When I told my older daughter about the review and my reaction, she had the best advice. She told me, “Dad, just take it.”
It’s now been over two weeks since the review has debuted, and so far no email recalling the review. You know, I think I’ll just take it.
