Good stuff.

Dinaw Mengetsu's short story in last week's New Yorker.

So great. Please read it.

So immediately after reading, I hunted down the advance of his upcoming novel, How to Read the Air, from which the short story is excerpted. It is powerful. Line up for your copy now. So far, it has the makings of a Great Book. I wish my break was now so that I could just go read more.

He's coming here October 25, which is a ways away, but mark your calendar.

P.S. More events excitement: while our event director Evan is off traversing Scotland on a mighty Highland Cow, I, his lackey, am on the verge of setting the official date for my favorite comedian of all time to read here in December. Gulp.
