TamTam Books News

Friday, June 17, 2005:

Tosh Berman (yours truly & publisher), Paul Knobloch (the translator), and Tom Recchion (the designer) will make an appearance at Vroman's Bookstore for a book signing with respect to TamTam Books' latest adventure: Boris Vian's “Autumn in Peking.”

The event will take place on Saturday, June 25 at 7:00 P.M. The bookstore is located at 695 E. Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena. Their phone no. is 626-449-5320.

I will give a brief introduction to the world of TamTam Books, and Paul, the translator of this masterpiece, will give a reading. We did a similar event at Book Soup - which was a huge success. This one will be different with respect that I will give a ‘personal’ talk about the thoughts behind TamTam Books and why I do it in this day and age. I am also going to make a special CD for this event to be given out FREE to the audience. First come first serve. It will be totally different than the infamous Book Soup CD. The Vroman’s collection will be a very subjective choice of songs that deal with Vian and the world of French Jazz and pop music. . It will be dark, beautiful, moody, danceable, sexual in nature, and lovely to hold.

What will make this event really special is that we will have Tom Recchion on hand to sign books as well as the publisher and Paul. He has done the brilliant design work on the entire TamTam Books line. Tom is responsible for making books once again, a fetish to hold and smell. Oh, and also to read.

For those who are coming to the event – do write back and let me know, so I know how many cds to make for this event. Sadly I can’t make copies for people not appearing at the event. But don’t worry your day will come.

Also sometime this week I will post the songs with liner notes on the TamTam Books website www.tamtambook.com
