Martin Amis, whose new book "House of Meetings" has just been releaseed (Jan. 16) is planning a tour in the following dates and locations in the US:

Martin Amis, US Appearances, House of Meetings Tour

January 23, 7:00 pm: Los Angeles Public Library, 630 W. Fifth Street.
January 24, 8:00 pm: Jewish Community Center of San Francisco, 3200 California Street.
January 25, 7:30 pm: Kepler’s, 1010 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, CA.
January 26, 7:30 pm: Elliott Bay Book Company at Town Hall Seattle, 1119 8th Ave.
January 28, noon: Lookinglass Theater, 821 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago.
January 29, 8:00 pm: 92nd Street Y, 1395 Lexington Ave., New York. With Norman Rush.
January 31, 6:00 pm: Harvard Bookstore, Brattle Theater, 40 Brattle St., Cambridge, MA.
February 1, 8:00 pm: Philadelphia Free Library, 1901 Vine St. Philadelphia.

The nearest location to me is Cambridge, MA. It's too far. If only he had an appearance at Barnes & Noble in Burlington, Vermont!

And no mention of a Canadian tour! This is one of the times I feel like I live in the boonies, even though I am now back at the hub of the great Metropolin of Montreal. Books are always released a little later here than in the States (sometimes even 6 months later) and I'm always surprised how easier it is to find books by the Canadian poet Anne Carson in Vermont than in Montreal's largest Chapters (just an example of the inscrutability of Canadian literary priorities).
