Black postcards (paperback crop)

Over at the official Dean & Britta web site Dean has blogged about the imminent paperback release of Black Postcards...

The paperback looks great; it has that distinguished Penguin logo right on the front, along with a quote from Liz Phair’s review in the New York Times Book Review: "Fast paced and memorable, peopled with characters you could only find in the music industry. . . It’s as if a curtain were brushed aside and we all got to go backstage." It almost makes me want to read it myself.

The paperback will be released on 5 May and is available to pre-order from

Dean will be doing a couple of readings from the book; firstly at the paperback launch event at the Book Court in Brooklyn on May 8th and then at the Cakeshop in Manhattan on June 17th.
