The Present in the Past Tense
Austin’s coolest customers showed up at BookPeople on June 16 to listen to Chuck Klosterman, a man who's made thinking deeply about pop culture his mission. Before the event, Klosterman chatted with the Chronicle about his latest book But What If We're Wrong?: Thinking About the Present as If It Were the Past, TV, and our town itself.

Bedside Manner: Sharing Shelf Space
After a lot of resistance (read: self-righteous, swoony monologues about the tactile superiority of bound books), I’ve become a convert to e-reading. And I hit the jackpot with prodigious readers for parents who are kind to share their Kindle library with me despite my years of sneering about Amazon overlords and you can’t dog-ear a device, Daaad.

Bedside Manner: Keeping Up to Date
A while back, I wrote a column about the need to expand my horizons given that so much of my day-to-day life revolved around food. I felt like I was becoming insufferable constantly talking about this or that chef or the decor at some new hot spot. I feared I had become a lousy date.

Bedside Manner: Guitar & Pen
In April 1980, I was 14, and my campaign to see the Who at the Oakland Coliseum understandably doomed. Post-birthday that summer, the Cars at the same venue proved a poor runner-up. (Van Halen there next, no better.) The first proved a bitter precedent throughout high school, college, and grad school: Homework – reading – usurping fun.

Bedside Manner: Hell, Ghosts, and Blood
The world is often a dark and hideous place, filled with disaster, idiocy, cruelty, and stupidity. I'm a firm believer that one's choice in literature should reflect that in as jovial a fashion as possible.

It’s Alan – Alan Cumming – and he’s coming to Austin with his show Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs. Known primarily for his roles in various stage performances such as Cabaret and films like Eyes Wide Shut, this is a different kind of show for Cumming.

Beside Manner: Facing Grief
I hate to admit this, but I go through periods of heavy reading and then not reading at all. Right now, I'm resting in that lull. Much of that is because 2016 has uprooted my life in ways I couldn't imagine. And it's hard to move past that.

How Negin Farsad Sees the World … and How You Should See It Too
Social justice comedian Negin Farsad’s book, How To Make White People Laugh, will not only have you chortling at well-spun anecdotes about homemade bed-sheet hijabs, college comedy troupes, and wine slushies, but also more serious topics like Islamophobia, sexism, and bigotry.
