What would you characterize as an ideal interaction with a reader?
I spot them on the subway. Even before I notice they’re immersed in The Magicians, I’m drawn to their raw intelligence and attractiveness. The book looks well-thumbed—this isn’t their first time at the rodeo. Our eyes meet: there is recognition and mutual respect. No words are necessary. Then they get off at the next stop, leaving behind a single hundred-dollar bill on the seat.
P.S. He will be at WORD tomorrow launching The Magician King!
