Who is Tao Lin? According to Time Out: "a literary phenomenon—a DIY writer who's making a name for himself without an MFA or a mainstream publisher." Publishers Weekly: "a prolific blogger... for whom the web is an integral part of writing and life." Matt Briggs, writing in this week's Stranger: "He is an infuriating blend of ambition, immature talent, and beautifully aggressive drive." His first two books of fiction are being released simultaneously: Bed and Eeeee Eee Eeee. (Elliott Bay Book Company, 101 S Main St, 624-6600. 7:30 pm, free.)
