This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

A post earlier today about author Marisha Pessl suggested that she might only be "book hot." Having seen another photo and verified that it was not taken by Marion Ettinger, we have upgraded Ms. Pessl's condition to "TV hot." Clearly today's Times photo was unrepresentative; maybe everything looks better in black and white.

Gawker regrets the error. Also, Marisha, call us!
