buy this print!

It's interesting to go this far with a book, over more than one update. I have re-read so many parts of Wuthering Heights in the last while that all the characters are swimming around in my brain like .. brain fish.

Nelly, I AM Heathcliff!


Amazing news! Hark! A Vagrant was named one of the top ten fiction books of the year by Time magazine. I'm bowled over.

Come in here close now, I have a secret: Did you buy my book as a gift for someone this holiday season? If you are in New York on Friday (the 16th), come to Community Bookstore in Brooklyn, and I will sign it to them for you. I'll be there from 7-9pm. I'm trying to keep this event pretty low key, a nice little holly-jolly thing. There may be cider!

I have two shows coming up! The first is The Moon's year-end celebration, on Dec 19 in Tribeca! It features myself, Michael Showalter, Julie Klausner and Andrea Rosen, plus The Moon regulars! Pretty rad!
The second is the third Crime Stoppers Club, hosted by myself and Michael Kupperman! It's Dec 27, at Luca Lounge in the East Village, 7pm. More details to follow!

Felipe Galindo gave me his book recently, and it's a real charmer! Put that on your list for your Mexican-American friends.

My comrades at Pizza Island have also been busy.


Time is runnin' out for Christmas!

The store has three new shirts! It's been a while. But here they are!




The book is still available for order!



Topatoco is selling it, along with a reissue of the first book! There is a pretty good combo deal there.



If merchandise isn't for you but you would like to support Hark! A Vagrant, you can do that here. Thanks for reading!
