WORD's bookstore dreams have finally come true: David Sedaris is coming to Greenpoint! Following a 7 PM reading in our cozy basement, he'll be signing books in our kids' room for as long as it takes for him to meet his fans. We'll be celebrating the paperback release of Calypso, but don't worry—we'll have plenty of his classics on hand, too.

I'm Tyler Lindsey, and until recently, I had an okay apartment, an okay girlfriend, and an okay job as a bellboy at a respectable Boston hotel. Then rock star Chris Raiden died right before I brought his room service-stiffing me on the tip, by the way-and my life went to hell. My fifteen minutes of fame was more like five seconds, and my girlfriend left me in disgust.
