changing hands

Here I am after my reading at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe last Friday night. See the swell t-shirt they gave me? Look! You can get one too. I don’t normally plug things here, but I have a special fondness for this design since my memoir Fun Home is partly about how my parents were like fictional characters to me. Besides which, Changing Hands was an excellent bookstore. In fact, it’s the 2007 Publishers Weekly Bookseller of the Year. There was a very nice, engaged crowd there who pelted me with challenging questions.

Arizona was hot and dry. I got to go swimming at the hotel pool. It was unnervingly pleasurable.
