Piazza tales

On Monday, October 10--that's right, this very night--Tom Piazza will be reading up at Columbia University at Dodge Hall, Room 413, at 7:30 PM. He's the author of a superb novel, My Cold War, whose praises I've previously sung on this blog. He's also produced a collection of short stories, Blues and Trouble, and a clutch of fiendishly intelligent books about jazz and popular music, the most recent being Understanding Jazz: Ways to Listen. Hearing him read should be a treat. In addition, he's a New Orleans resident who's recently been flooded out of house and home--you can show your support and become smarter at the same time. Come one, come all!
