A little bit in the future, but I want to get this information out due to the fact that I will be in Japan for three weeks right before this event:
Tosh Berman (yours truly & publisher), Paul Knobloch (the translator), and Tom Recchion (the designer) will make an appearance at Vroman's Bookstore for a book signing with respect to TamTam Books' latest adventure: Boris Vian's "Autumn in Peking."
The event will take place on Saturday, June 25 at 7:00 P.M. The bookstore is located at 695 E. Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena. Their phone no. is 626-449-5320.
I will give a brief introduction to the world of Boris Vian, and Paul, the translator of this masterpiece, will give a reading. We did a similar event at Book Soup - which was a huge success. Women fainted, men cried, and we sold tons of books. Also I made a special CD for that particular event - which is already a collector's item in certain social circles in Downtown L.A. and dark alleys in Venice, California.
I promise to make another 'original' CD for the Vroman's event as well. The music will be Vian's world - which in turn means the inner world of TamTam Books. It will be dark, beautiful, moody, danceable, sexual in nature, and lovely to hold.
What will make this event really special is that we will have Tom Recchion on hand to sign books. He has done the brilliant design work that is making books once again, a fetish to hold and smell. Oh, and also to read.
I will write a reminder to all of you once I get back from Japan, but let this notice serve as an invitation to a remarkable and intense experience.
