Some months ago, we promised nonstop Jonathan Ames coverage. Now we lapsed badly on that score. In fact, we lapsed so badly that not even the Unitarian Universalist Church will take us in.
But hopefully we can provide penance by informing you that Jonathan Ames is on another book tour — this time, for the paperback release of Wake Up, Sir!, which is not only a very funny book but a loving homage to P.G. Wodehouse’s Worcester-Jeeves novels. (Yes, kids, before Ask Jeeves blasphemized the canon, there were many funny books written about a butler named Jeeves.) Fortunately, Ames has taken Jeeves back.
You can find Ames at the following places over the next few weeks:
Tuesday, July 19, 7PM: Booksmith, 1644 Haight Street, San Francisco, CA.
Friday, July 22, 7:30PM: Skylight Books, 1818 North Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, CA (the Los Feliz neighborhood).
Friday, July 29, 7PM: Barnes & Noble, Astor Place, New York City, NY.
If you’re in the San Francisco area, the incomparable Tito Perez and I will be at the Booksmith. Feel free to stop by and say hello.
