Given that Sherman Alexie decided to cancel his tour and most public appearances for the year, it's unlikely he'll read tonight. But Daniel Handler will certainly be there! He's dropping the Lemony Snicket pen name and returning to his more realistic, troubling, Philip Roth-y treatment of the dark lives of juveniles with a new slim novel called All the Dirty Parts. It's about a porn-obsessed high schooler named Cole who constantly thinks about having sex. Like the young protagonists in Roth's Portnoy's Complaint or J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye, Cole's newly increased testosterone levels apparently give him license to push the legal boundaries of sexual and social behavior. If you don't get enough of the president's unrestrained id throughout the week, try a romp through this dirty—and ultimately very lonely—teenager's mind. You'll probably laugh as much as you cringe with this one. RICH SMITH
