In class tonight there seemed to be some interest in Jonathan Foer’s new book Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. It is a truly beautiful book. Go get it. Go here to see a video of JSF talk about the new novel. And if you can make it, go here in Austin to see him in person on April 27 at the fabulous Bookpeople.
If you’ve never been to Bookpeople you should really go. The store is really, really cool. My fiance and I have seen Alton Brown from the TV show “Good Eats,” and Terry Pratchett who is the best satirist you’ve never heard of. And in a bit of self-aggrandizing, here are pics from those events:
Geez…you woulda thought I might’ve taken the damn hat off for the pics, huh?
