Nathan Englander and Geoff Dyer stopped by the store to sign books and eat donuts. Naturally.

Which means that if you need a signed What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank or Zona (or or or), we’ve got ‘em!

Oh, man, were we supposed to be giving our authors donuts when they sign books for us here in our office? Is that a thing? Is there some kind of book-to-donut ratio we should follow? You know, something like 1 donut per 50 books, and after 500 books we switch to straight up booze.

Transcript from the show

Every book better be fully intimate, it better be all you have. I’m obviously not shy because I’m going to talk your ear off today but I’m private, which is different. But the idea for me to be truly intimate – for me to be naked and raw – the fiction allows me to do what I need to do emotionally. And with this book, certain stories were looking at things – it was a change for me to look at things that were right there.
