This week: I'm reading at A Clean Well Lighted Place for Books in San Francisco, along with my friend Alexander Chee, author of the new novel EDINBURGH. Later this month, I'll be in the quiet, wine-country town of Sonoma for my last reading of the season at Readers' Books. To schedule a future reading, contact me at normalboys@hotmail.com.

Reading soon at a bookstore near you.
