Paul Auster

I got to meet one of my all-time favourite authors briefly tonight at Barnes & Noble in Union Square near where I work; Paul Auster read a chapter from his new novel, The Brooklyn Follies, and then signed about a million copies of the book, including mine.

They have some pretty good authors at that store; last summer, I listened to Umberto Eco read from his latest, The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana. I bought a hardback copy, but couldn’t be bothered to queue to get it signed, and I have to say I wasn’t that impressed after reading it.
