Winter of 1967. It’s snowing in NY, I’m a kid, in my bedroom on Long Island, plotting how to get down to St. Marks Place and the Fillmore. On WNEW, Scott Muni does an ad for Paul Sargent’s menswear, where, if I were older and actually had money, I could buy my first Nehru jacket. I’m sad because I don’t know how long it will be until I can get to the Village. Then this song comes on, and I know I will arrive soon. Because there’s no opportunity necessary, and no experience needed…

IF THE WRITING DOESN’T GET YOU, THE “LIGHT RECEPTION” WILL! COME ON OUT!
COME TO A GRAND EVENT IN GRAND PARK, WHERE LA AUTHORS AND READERS WILL GATHER TO CELEBRATE THE WRITTEN WORD. WHILE LORD AND LADY GRANTHAM ARE NOT EXPECTED, OVERMAN WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE, FULLY AWARE THAT WHAT CONSTITUTES DOWNTOWN FOR MOST PEOPLE, IS UPTOWN TO HIM.
The author’s home away from home invites you to shop, surf, stay, eat and LISTEN to the literary stylings of his first novel, in a reading/booksigning that is being billed as the PREMIER EVENT taking place in Ventura at 3 o’clock in the afternoon. Hope to see you there.
Bruce Ferber in conversation with legendary book show host, Connie Martinson, who, not that long ago, interviewed another first time author, Barack Obama. We discuss “Elevating Overman,” but I remain coy about a run in 2016.

I was happily tuned in to my customized Leonard Cohen station when what should appear in the right hand side of the frame?
…an advertisement for….
As the music of one of the great ladies’ men of all time fills the room, Pandora somehow feels it appropriate to pair this with dick hardener for the elderly. After which pops up an ad for brain teasers and memory exercises.
Somehow, the personal information that has been fed to their site has left them with the impression that those of us who listen to an artist whose genius has extended to his eighth decade are somehow soft and feeble. In an effort to correct this, Pandora, I want you to know that I am in the market for a new…
…and my trunk is filled with…
Please keep this in mind when marketing to me and the rest of Mr. Cohen’s fans.
Contrary to what some of you snarky folks have intimated, “Live in Boca Raton” is NOT an oxymoron. This vibrant city has warmly extended an invitation for me to speak and sign books on Thursday, January 24 at 7:30 PM. It is also the city that named itself “Mouth of the Rat.” I leave it up to you fine readers to judge the wisdom of both choices. Meanwhile, if you happen to be in the Ft. Lauderdale/Boca area, come on by…
