Unfortunately, I'll be out-of-town, but do think about checking out this reading:
Mark Sarvas, author of the newly released novel Harry, Revised, and one of my favorite literary bloggers (The Elegant Variation) will be reading in Washington on Wednesday, May 21 at Olsson’s Books & Records.

Location: Olsson's Books & Records

Additional details are here.
Here’s a description of the novel: “Harry, Revised is the story of Harry Rent, a guilt-ridden, down-on-his-luck widower, who tries to reinvent himself following his wife's untimely death. His emotional journey takes him from his own solipsistic and outrageously misdirected fantasies about an obsidian-haired, twenty-two-year-old waitress at his local greasy spoon, to the tenuous beginnings of an actual, personal transformation.” And you can read more about the book here.
