I went a long to the Deaf institute on Wed 14th for a reading with Tao Lin,Ben Brooks and a few others.It was a good night me and my boyfriend went because we really like Tao Lin,I’ve read his first book Richard Yates and I’m still currently enjoying reading his most recent book Taipei.
The night was organised by author Chris Killen (@chriskillen) and hadn’t been run for five years! They told us that Facebook events didn’t even exist back then.
The point to this is at the end of the readings I went up to Tao Lin to sign my book,it was confusing he was trying to ask my name and I said I didn’t really want the book to me (its not my book) and then he asked “who’s book is it then?” I just said “is it ok if you just sign it?” I get the impression I pissed him off as he got his pen and then just scribbled all over my book.
Cheers Tao Lin!
