Authors, Meet Your Audience

Every author dreams of her book tour. It’s a time when a writer can meet her audience, explain herself, hear accolades. Or is that just a fantasy? Isn’t the book tour an anachronism?

Cynthia Ozick, considered one of the finest writers in American today, kept a journal during her first-ever book tour for Heir To The Glimmering World. Her hilarious, yet heartbreaking, article appeared the New York Times Book Review.

Now the Hartford Courant has come up with another collection of bloopers from authors’ book tours. (via Publishers Lunch)
