John Weir has a new book - finally!


John Weir has a new book. It's been a while, and although I can't say I've been able to hold my breath all these years, I admit that I'm almost surprised that it won't be called "Mr. Novel". That's the form of address, John jokes, which many of his friends have used to describe the long-awaited successor to "The Irreversible Decline of Eddie Socket".

if you know John, the actual title bears its own promise. It's "What I did Wrong" and it will be published by Viking Press on March 27.

The book is already on the top of my reading stack, even though I can't see it yet.

Yes, there will be New York readings. I can vouch for John's natural comic talents and I'll probably be at the first event at the very least. This comes from someone who tries to avoid the form like the pest - unless its John Weir or Gore Vidal.
