The one where I read the preview of Sherman Alexie’s new book and wonder if the Gods are laughing at me.
I found a preview of Radioactive Love Song in a dusty corner in one of our library offices - it is at least a year old. Just a chapter or two, 30 pages total of his new book. I consumed it in 10 minutes or less. 10 minutes of rapt reading filled with laughter and me reading aloud choice lines to my colleague. I flip over the book and it says coming in April 2009. But it isn’t. I’ve checked our vendor. I’ve checked other vendors. It is not available! What is up with this people? How could Little, Brown tease us like this?!? Not kind, people, not kind.
