Hanging Out With the Dream King
“Here’s how the project works,” says Mathias SvaIina, a man who recently bicycled from Marfa to Austin. “I take about 40-50 subscribers per month and write dreams for them every day of that month. Then I’ll bike around before dawn and deliver them by hand, usually leaving them on front doors. For subscribers out of town, I mail the dreams every day.”

My Father’s House: A Moment With Bruce Springsteen
Winding from the entrance around the back of the building and down Sixth Street, the line at BookPeople on Thursday bustled with hundreds of people waiting to get a picture taken with Bruce Springsteen. The event, supporting his memoir Born to Run, allegedly sold out 1,200 tickets in one minute. I’m somewhere in the middle of the queue, trying not to throw up.

The Mystery: What’s on Kleinfeld’s List?
Kleinfeld? That’s Lenny Kleinfeld, of course: The man who left Chicago for a business trip to L.A. and, more than 30 years later, still hasn’t returned. The man who introduced the world to the stalwart detectives Bergman and Dunegan and all the homicide-riddled shit they have to deal with in that Windy City of theirs.

By the way, that's a book tour, not a music tour – the Boss is pushing his new memoir, Born to Run – but look at it this way: You won't hear him play at this BookPeople event, but you'll get closer to him than you would at a concert.
