Robert Freeman Wexler and I are reading tomorrow night at Brother Bear’s in Yellow Springs. 6:30pm, the best coffee in town, maybe some of the best fiction (written?) in town… okay, I know there are plenty of writers around here, but yeah, gotta self-promote, it’s my blog! And free wine afterwards. And you can buy a book and support a great small press, and read a good yarn after.
Anyway, yes folks, as Tom Waits said,
“Step right up
Please allow thirty days for delivery, don’t be fooled by cheap imitations
You can live in it, live in it, laugh in it, love in it
Swim in it, sleep in it,
Live in it, swim in it, laugh in it, love in it
Removes embarrassing stains from contour sheets, that’s right
And it entertains visiting relatives, it turns a sandwich into a banquet
Tired of being the life of the party?
Change your shorts, change your life, change your life
Change into a nine-year-old Hindu boy, get rid of your wife…”
Okay hopefully no one will get rid of his wife tomorrow night at the reading, but nevertheless:
August 14, 2009, 6:30pm, Brother Bear’s, we’ll see you there.
And Tom Waits will probably not be there.
