Spiele and the Eagle

In Uncategorized on May 26, 2009 at 10:18 am

A Terrible Splendor will be published in Germany in July, with the title Ich Spiele um Mein Leben (I’m Playing for My Life). The publisher, Osburg, plans to launch the book the week of July 18-26 at the German Open in Hamburg, and former Wimbledon champion Michael Stich has agreed to take part in the presentation. Click here to see the book’s pages in Osburg’s summer catalog.

Our local paper, the Berkshire Eagle, finally reviewed the book this past Sunday. If there is anyone out there who doesn’t faithfully read the Eagle cover to cover, you can view the review here. Got an even better writeup on the book’s Amazon page by Rob Hardy, one of Amazon’s Top-50 reviewers. I suppose these are people who review books as a hobby, although Hardy apparently also writes reviews for his local paper.

Look for a review in Sunday’s New York Times Book Review (online beginning Saturday morning), and then on Monday I’ll be doing a live radio interview on  “Writer’s Voice” on WMUA-FM (Amherst, MA), audible on their web site live or after the fact.
