Ed reads at Powell's tonight at 7:30...in Portland...
In Ed Park’s Personal Days, there’s a character named Jack who gives unwanted back rubs—or “jackrubs.” I’m sold. Park, founding editor of The Believer, will read from his debut novel about the modern-day work environment and its absurdity. Personal Days is like a literary hybrid of The Office and Office Space, so fans of hilarious office antics will not be disappointed. Powell's City of Books, 1005 W Burnside St., 228-0540. 7:30 pm. Free. Map
(Here's what the Oregonian had to say—and here's Ed blogging over at the Powell's website last month.)
