Read this: Tiger Mom comes to D.C., Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez, Mark Ruffalo
Amy Chua thought her "Tiger Mother" memoir would be greeted as a charming David Sedaris-esque exercise in self-deprecation. But for her Politics & Prose reading on Friday, her critics came to judge her. Even those (or maybe especially those) who haven't bothered to read the book yet.
Sorry, no Charlie -- but Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez stopped by Georgetown on the charm offensive for their new still-seeking-a-distributor flick (directed by the son, starring the dad)... And Monica Hesse dissects Mark Ruffalo's slacker-dude appeal. "It's supposed to be one night of fun, and three years later he's still sitting on your couch and somehow you're paying for his dental insurance."... The Reliable Souce will return online Tuesday and in print Wednesday.
