Nick Turse

It was bound to happen one of these days.  I was taking one of my periodic strolls through The Strand’s outdoor bargain book carts and there it was — my first book, The Complex.  Oh, the ignominy!  Out on the street, asking price $2. 

Since I’ve long since overcome the shame of shameless promotion, I removed it from the shelf and gave it prominent placement (see second photo).  I wondered if it might be a little desperate but you cannot argue with success.  When I walked back 5 minutes later, there was no sign of the book anywhere.
