LOOK ME IN THE EYE. "It's Soup!"
Do you recall the old Lipton Soup advertisement? Lipton is a powdered, dried out soup you add water to and then boil for a bit so that the 4,231 chemicals in it soften up and resemble broth and noodles. The ad campaign featured antsy kids asking, "Mom! Is it soup yet?" "Not yet." And then the final payoff, "It's soup!"
Well, LOOK ME IN THE EYE is soup! And probably tastier and more nourishing that that packet of dreck called Lipton chicken noodle soup.
Here's the hardcover. WOWEE! I don't mean to boast (as I puff out my chest to its full 1/2 " dimension) but I have a manuscript copy of LMITE. Plain old computer paper. Very cool. And I have an Advance Reader Copy (ARC.) But I dearly want a hardcover.
I'll be at John's signing in NYC at the flagship Barnes & Noble in Union Square (NYC) on 9/25! I took out a small loan so I can pay a babysitter for 7 hours. I can't wait to meet Augusten Burroughs, John's brother, and to just celebrate John's acheivement in this book. I'll also be at the signing on the 26th at RJ Julia in Madison Connecticut. Then I'll stop going to signings lest I become a groupie. I've read about groupies in John's book, from his KISS days. I don't think I should become one at my age.
COME TO A SIGNING!!!! NY, CT and then MASS lead the way. Check out the dates at John's SITE .
