Andrew Vachss: The Virtual Bookstore Appearance
Although most of Andrew Vachss' bookstore appearances are billed as "readings," what usually happens is that Vachss polls the audience to determine if folks would prefer a dialogue to a reading, and the dialogue invariably wins out. However, sometimes a reading has been specifically promised. We recorded one of those rare (and very recent events), and present it here, so you can make your own decision:
Andrew Vachss reads from The Getaway Man.
Thanks to: Mike Maimone, for sound engineering and editing, and providing the recording equipment; Alan Talman for the photos; Frances, Janica, and the staff at Barnes and Noble; James, Shirley, Frank, Vince, David, Jill, and the entire large and enthusiastic audience that showed up that night.
Dialup users please see the technical notes.
