Come to San Francisco's funky and red-velveted Rickshaw Stop on March 16 to see Joe Quirk read. The reading's theme is "Cliffhangers" and I know exactly what Joe has to be reading: ten minutes from the first chapter of his novel The Ultimate Rush. Joe read from this at Litquake and you could feel the palpable inhale as people waited for his next words and realized blue-balledly that his 10 minutes were up.
Five others are reading too. James Warner is the wickedly funny emcee. Should be a good night out. More details here.
