Christmas lights notwithstanding, our December has been considerably brightened by some recent author visits. RWB's great favorite Jay Cantor is in town for the holidays with his lovely family and so it was inevitable that he would pay a visit at your favorite bookstore in the Marais. He is the author of Krazy Kat, The Death of Che Guevarra and Great Neck (which you see pictured here) as well as two books of essays (The Space Between: Literature and Politics and On Giving Birth to One's Own Mother). He is also a professor of creative writing at Tufts University.
Another author who dropped by for a visit was David Burke, whose book Writers in Paris is a nice addition to our shelves on all things French related.
