in the Wolverine Room of the Michigan Union . 6 p.m.
Robert Newman is a novelist and political comedian touring in support of
his new book "Fountain at the Center of the World." His reading will
include excerpts from the novel, comedy with a bite and even a little
"A sublimely frisky novel? [Fountain at the Center of the World] reads
like what you?d get if Tom Wolfe clambered inside the head of Noam
Chomsky--it eloquently and angrily scorches a lot of earth?. The
talismanic Catch-22 of the anti-globalization protest movement, the
fictional complement to Naomi Klein?s influential treatise No Logo.... As
ferocious as a jar of freeze-dried Paul Krugman columns.?
