After his reading at this year's conference, Mark got all of us anxiously awaiting the release of his new book: "The Man Who Quit Money."
It's not coming out until March 2012 (from Riverhead/Penguin), but he's already getting impressive advance praise from the likes of Elizabeth Gilbert and Bill McKibben.
You can check out what they're saying about the book, and read a summary, at the book's Facebook page.
Congrats, Mark! We can't wait to read more!

Last year, 2011 Taos Instructor and novelist Porochista Khakpour contributed this essay to the New York Times' editorial coverage of the ninth anniversary of 9/11.
This year, for the tenth anniversary, she participated in this video that discusses the writing of and response to that op-ed. As you'll see at the link, you probably haven't heard of her fellow contributors: just Tom Brokaw, Daniel Libeskind and Joseph S. Nye :)
Porochista also writes about her experience in documenting 9/11 in this essay on the Granta website.
Porochista is off to Europe, soon, and we'll miss her: but before that she'll be participating in this September 22nd artists' talk, hosted by On the Media's Brooke Gladstone, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
Meanwhile, Taos Conference Graduate Assistant and Brooklyn native Elizabeth Tannen also had an essay published for the anniversary of 9/11: you can find hers on the NPR opinion page.
Congrats to all!
