Ffun with Fforde

Brookline Booksmith hosted a reading tonight with author Jasper Fforde (LT), and I'll just say if you have a chance to catch one of his events, go for it. He entertained a large audience with his "principles on writing" (scrawled on a piece of paper this afternoon, he said), tales of publishing woes, fun with Welsh pronunciations, &c. He took a bunch of questions as well, including one about the printers' oops in the British edition (he was intrigued when I told him I'd bought a copy of that edition specifically because of the error, thinking his publisher would be thrilled that it was increasing sales).

Fforde's as amusing in person as he comes across in his books, so if he'll be near you, stop by and see him.
