reclusive blogauthor makes public appearance one night only

with 6 comments

Ok. So I’ve said lots about what I did this weekend. What about what I didn’t do? I was supposed to WORK ON BOOK WORK ON BOOK WORK ON BOOK YOU FUCKER! But that’s neither here nor there. And write a letter of reference, will take care of that tomorrow when stationary is at hand. And finish reading Crash, but I’ll do that tonight.

But also, I was supposed to write a talk on a certain very famous Irish author for a lecture I’m giving at a charity bookshop Monday evening. They asked, and what was I supposed to say – world hunger is at stake! I will scrabble something up tomorrow. But if you’re very bored and at the same time utterly fascinated by the author of this blog (and, really, how could you not be! I mean, look at this stuff! and I am cute in person!) I hereby formally invite you to my charity bookshop lecture. Um, you’ll have to write me for the details, for reasons of pseudonymity, but I’d love to a) see some friendly faces and b) not lecture to a single bored person who was otherwise sifting the LPs and c) this won’t happen again, probably, as it’s a unique combination of no-ID required lecturing, not a pay-in-advance conference and stealth enough for me to let you know on here without giving the game away.

It’s out in West London somewhere. No, not the Harrods branch of Oxfam. Further west. The event is free, except you’ll have to buy one of the sixteen copies of Rushdie’s Shalimar the Clown that they have in stock if you come. In return, I will supervise your PhD (if applicable – paying punters only, please!)

  1. The bookstore was clouded with cigar smoke and whisky fumes. Unidentifiable faces mumbled incoherently to each other, half-whispered sentences drifting through the gloom. “Who’s speaking this time?” “Nobody knows, it’s a mystery.” “There were rumours about a connection to a Badiouian cabal.” “I heard it’s a talk about the connection between Finnegans Wake and the Iranian protests.” “It’s not Alain de Botton is it?”

  2. Hahahahahaha! A BadiouVian cabal indeed! Yes, there will be no reference to Iran. And I am so much less bald than AdB it’s not funny!

  3. If for whatever reason you don’t turn up I wonder if the audience will stage an impromptu rendition of Godot using copies from the shelves.

  4. It’s probable I will turn up, so there will be no Godot. Plus I am not quite as ineffable as Godot. A little ineffable, but not quite like that.

  5. == Secret dossier ==

    Like this, those authors become true “characters” in the market editorial, after throwing their works becoming withdrawn, reclusive and hiding in the shadows, and being many, just known by their literary agents and representatives business.Maybe, one of those cases was due to “Percyfaw Code” unexpected success that circulates for the web translated in a series of texts, blogs, sites,encyclopedic entries and several copied hoax of part of the E-book published by recognized IntercontinentalPress,by negotiates international representing famous authors and the most traditional comics of the world.

    Due to this made available virtual strategy the content of the text for certain time in his site, got the public’s attention for C.S Scriblerius, that as writer very a little is known, maybe, due to the implications of the theme described in the reproduction of this manuscript prefaced by the stranger author.O content “Percyfaw Code”,is a type of the magician’s spy Magister MaskMelin secret dossier .
