Simon Doonan has been busy with Barneys' Green Holiday and overseeing the eco-chic window décor. But between serving as the retailer's creative director and authoring his Observer column, Doonan had time to pen his fourth book, Eccentric Glamour: Creating an Insanely More Fabulous You, which will be released by Simon and Schuster in April 2008 and will retail for $24. His latest work offers advice on "creating an insanely more fabulous you." It is by no means your traditional style service manual; typically Doonanesque, the book offers quirky cultural commentary mixed with humorous personal anecdotes. He also offers one-on-one interviews with glamorous folk including Iman, Lucy Liu, Tilda Swinton, and Malcolm Gladwell. The book's tag line: "Say no to ho...and yes to eccentric glamour." This one sounds pretty good - my mother met him at Barneys and I have a signed personalized copy of "Wacky Chicks."
