Waiting for Caro

We thought you'd get a kick out of these photos, taken by the folks at Magers & Quinn Booksellers in Minneapolis, who looked out the window and saw this patient man waiting for the store to open:

 

Andy Sturdevant

Some people line up for the "Hunger Games" or "Twilight"; with Andy Sturdevant--artist, writer, arts administrator--it's "The Passage of Power," the latest in the series of Lyndon Johnson biographies by Robert A. Caro.  (You can read our review here.)

"This is my 'Harry Potter' release!" Sturdevant told the folks at Magers and Quinn. Wondering why? Read the AP's Hillel Italie's story on the popularity of the Caro books.

 

You just don't see pins like that anymore--except on the lapel of Andy Sturdevant.

Fortunately for all concerned, Magers & Quinn did open on time, and the Caro book was in stock. A story with a happy ending.
