Jonathan Coe

As promised, Jonathan Coe turned up at the bookstore yesterday to sign copies of his new one, The Terrible Privacy of Maxwell Sim. In my opinion, this kind of encounter is an experience one can only have working at an independent bookstore. When we each got done being extremely appreciative of what the other does (oh yeah, he loved the bookstore), he mentioned that he had never been to Boston before and was looking forward to exploring it a little on the T. He has never met compatriot Ian Rankin, but is a huge fan and wished he could stick around another week and meet him here on the 16th! He bought a copy of Wesley Stace's latest in paperback for his travels and was on his way.
