Also, both authors needed water before they read, it was getting hot as hell at the SoHo Digital Art Gallery which is a small space. Having water before reading at an event is nornal, but it was funny because Rick Moody whipped off his sweater and plead for water and the gallery people had to hunt for the water before he read.

P.s: On Amazon and BN.com you can read an excerpt from both books, sometimes it is nice to discover new authors, new writing styles and voices and the creativity involved with picking up a book you might not have typically considered: Here's Rick Moody's The Four Fingers of Death or on his website.
