As the first copies appear in stores in advance of publication day (that’s the front table at Crawford-Doyle on Madison Avenue, at right), news of HBO’s purchase of Unreal Estate for a Joel (The Matrix) Silver-produced serio-comic soap series is ricocheting around the Internets, inspiring items here, there and seemingly everywhere. The book is out Tuesday (or you can preorder on this web site) and on Wednesday, I’ll be signing copies and speaking about it for the first time in the underground author space at Barnes and Noble at 150 East 86th Street (near Lexington Avenue). It’s at 7PM. For Angelenos, I’ll be doing the same at the same hour on November 10th at Book Soup on Sunset Boulevard. Please come!
