And tonight (Wed. 5/21) at 7 p.m., don't miss Ghost founder Ed Park, reading from his debut novel Personal Days at McNally Robinson bookstore (52 Prince Street). The reading will be followed by a discussion with his editor, Julia Cheiffetz, and a signing. Stop by and say hi!

From Flavorpill:
Welcome to the working weak: reading Personal Daysthe debut novel by Ed Park, a founding editor of The Believer—is like staying late at the office, drunk on cough syrup, and coming across the diary of the person who occupied your desk a year before you did. In this intricate, hysterical novel, an unnamed New York office is being downsized according to indecipherable commands. Park's hilarious take on such cubicle routines as ordering lunch, hunting for a stapler, and joining the softball team will strike a chord with anyone who's ever done the 9-to-5, while the shocking shifts in tone perfectly convey the violence of corporate downsizing.
