At Book Expo America (BEA), a highlight each year is the “Author Speed Dating” event sponsored by the Association of American Publishers and the Children’s Book Council.
This year, 18 authors were given three minutes to tell each of the tables filled with booksellers about their new titles.
First impression: Its mocking litany of Irish writing clichés marks Mc Cormack as a true son of Myles na g Copaleen and Flann O'Brien, but there's also an echo of Philip K.
Dick in the sergeant's desire to root out possible future subversion.
The story: A sergeant nearing retirement and a young guard consider the mysterious and dangerous case of the only man in their Irish jurisdiction who has not written his memoirs.
The author: In 1996, novelist and short-story writer Mc Cormack won the Rooney Prize, given to an Irish writer under 40 showing exceptional promise.Police said Friday evening they still are trying to determine how fast the car was traveling when it left westbound Dickman Road about a.m.and struck the Capital Avenue bridge before sliding into the concrete channel.The car stopped on its top just east of the Washington Street bridge, where crews attached cables and pulled it from the water and found both men dead inside. Matt Robinson said Friday afternoon that the car was believed to be westbound on Dickman Road when it left the roadway and struck the bridge.Debris was scattered throughout the intersection and on both sides of the channel.This year, I sampled 19 different collections published within the past few months. This approach has the same limitation that real-world speed-dating has: It yields quick first impressions based on a short amount of time together.
