Ping-Pong, Pathos, and Passing the Bar September 29, 2003 in Blog My buddy Alex Wellen's book, Barman, is out, and it's a peach. Sexy, funny, and a great read. Alex will be doing a reading at Cody's on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley, 7:30 tonight. I'm going to have to miss that one, but Megan and I plan to attend his reading Wednesday at 7:00p at Book Passage in Corte Madera. See you there?
