Andrew Colvin has published another volume of Keel. This is The Invisible Diet, which John shopped around without success in the ’80s. I mentioned it here. It’s a curious book: it tells you how to change your eating habits by changing everything else in your life, and how to gradually wean yourself off sugar, caffeine, white flour, and other nasty substances. John meant it as a humorous but useful diet book; potential publishers were confused by it. Colvin has updated and expanded it for today’s dieters. You can find it here.
The show Monsters and Mysteries in America, seen on Destination America and the Discovery Channel, has filmed an episode devoted to John, which will air sometime in the spring. I chatted with the producers, but declined to be interviewed on camera. Nothing personal; I’ve just done a lot of TV and interviews in my time, and never particularly enjoyed them. I’d rather sit at home and work on other things.
Meanwhile, Happy Valentine’s Day. And if you’re following the Invisible Diet, lay off the chocolate.
