UPDATE FROM THE INSANE CITY TOUR
I'm on my way to Boston and then Portsmouth, N.H., where tonight I have an event at the Music Hall. Yesterday I was in Chicago, where I started at 6 a.m. with an appearance on the Mancow show, which also featured an 11-piece orchestra, a woman wearing a dress made of a total of four dress molecules, and a man wearing (Why not?) a purple gorilla costume. I performed "Gloria" with the 11-piece orchestra, because that is the traditional way to promote a novel on the radio. Here's a photograph taken by Mancow's sidekick, Mike North, showing me with Mancow and the gorilla. The giant finger at the top of the photograph belongs to Mike North.
Many, many hours later, at the end of a LONNNNNG day of book promotion, I did a booksigning at Anderson's Bookshop in Naperville. Several blog folks showed up, including The Amazing Steve, who did such fine work of summarizing the "plot" of 24 back when we used to liveblog the show. Here's a crappy photo of me with Steve:
Tomorrow I head to Atlanta, and Thursday I'm in Savannah. Friday I think I might have a beer.
