Stephen McCauley

Went to a book signing by Stephen McCauley at Borders this evening. There were about a dozen people there, & he seemed to know all of them already. He read from the beginning of his new book, then people started asking the standard author questions. I didn't stick around after that, but the book does sound like it's a fun read.

OK, the real reason I ended up there was that I was home sick on Monday & happened to hear him being interviewed on NPR's Fresh Air. He sounded like a very gentle soul, so I thought I'd check him out for myself. He's a somewhat small, very boyish looking 40-something, & does indeed seem like a very sweet guy. He looks like he does a lot of yoga.
