Early Evening Watch

Well, it's not really music related, but Sarah D & I went to a reading/ book signing by Sarah Waters (bad-ass Welsh/British author of "Tipping the Velvet", "Affinity", "Fingersmith" and "Nightwatch".

I flat-out loved "Tipping the Velvet" and "Fingersmith". "Night Watch is an impressive novel with its backward-through-time anti-chronological structure (not unlike the True Margrit song "Hours in Reverse"). It was even betterer hearing the author read her own words! How cool is that? I got a wee bit choked up--I LOVE to read this author and here's the very person whose books have given me so much joy. Here in the flesh! WOW. That's as splendid as LIVE MUSIC! YEAH!

So, the moral of the story--keep a watch for your favorite writers and go support them when they come into town.

For example: Mim Eichler Rivas is going on a tour for the paperback release of her excellent book "Beautiful Jim Key".

GO see her (she's my sister!)
