When last we met up with Al Franken's former sidekick Katherine Lanpher in February, the NYT was doing a "country mouse comes to the Big City and isn't that cute" piece on her. At the time she was writing a book and the NYT discussed her Midwesterness and, for instance, how she observed a smashing party from the balcony of her wonderful City apartment (she didn't attend the party, just observed it).
The lonely observations have apparently continued in the ensuing months, including her wandering around her charming neighborhood watching things happen and even taking a Big Bus Ride along the length of the island (presumably Manhattan). And, as "Katherine Lanpher's midlife move" reports, her book "Leap Days: Chronicles of a Midlife Move" is now available. She considers the West Village her new home, and the cosmopolitan local parochialists appear almost ready to welcome her as one of their own.
