An event strewn week (end)

I’e2’80’99m off to Phoenix for the weekend, two events and a chance to see my friends in Scottsdale of the Poisoned Pen, bookstore and press. Back Monday, assuming I survive the sudden climate change.

If any of you are within striking distance of San Francisco, you should know that I am doing an evening conversation with Michael Chabon next week, on November 2nd, at the Koret Auditorium of the San Francisco Public Library (100 Larkin Street) from 6:30 to 7:30. If you haven’e2’80’99t read his take on an aging Sherlock Holmes, THE FINAL SOLUTION, you need to go and order it right now. It’e2’80’99s a gorgeous little book that left me breathless with Michael’e2’80’99s sense of prose.

If the name Michael Chabon rings bells but you don’e2’80’99t recognize the melody, Michael wrote the Pulitzer winning ADVENTURES OF CAVALIER AND CLAY and WONDER BOYS among others. He also happens to be a terribly nice person, and handsome to boot. Sorry, I can come up with no drawbacks to the man, and I’e2’80’99m greatly looking forward to the event. Please, come join us.

    The Adventures of Cavalier and Clay?!?!? I *LOVE* that book! I didn’t know Mr. Chabon also wrote The Final Solution. Hmmm… I think my sister has that one, I must borrow it.
