Department of ‘Holy Shit, It’s Happening’

I went to Powell’s yesterday to pick up a gift for a friend, and, there, in the lobby, were copies of my book, next to Zadie Smith’s On Beauty. It’s a hard act to follow, but don’t worry, Zadie, you’ll do just fine. (I kid, I kid.)

I was surprised because Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits doesn’t officially come out until October 7, but I suppose the shipments arrived early. A quick check online showed that both and have it available already.

Check out your favorite local bookstore and let me know if you see my book there. (Send me a picture if you happen to have a camera phone!) And while you’re at it, pick up a copy if you like.
