Felix Harr’s amusing book of imaginary tennis matches, think Alexander Pope vs. Thelonious Monk, came to Pressed Wafer through one of our original subscribers, the novelist Paul Auster. Harr, who covers sports for the Canadian newspaper, the Saskatoon Gazette, learned of Auster’s interest in sports and contacted him. When Auster read Love or Nothing he laughed heartily and sent the manuscript on to Pressed Wafer. We joined in the laughter and have published the book so others may enjoy it. At $5 a copy it costs less than a can of tennis balls.
On Saturday, May 2, 2015 (National Independent Bookstore Day), Paul Auster, Felix Harr, and Pressed Wafer’s Bill Corbett will read from Love or Nothing at Brooklyn’s Community Bookstore, 143 7th Avenue, Brooklyn. The matches will begin at 7 p.m.
