This Fall, Stephin Merritt will be heading out on a brief book tour to promote his new book, 101 Two-Letter Words. A complete list of dates can be found here. I'm of course delighted by Mr. Merritt's series of solo public performances as of late, but also a bit bewildered. Nevertheless, I will no-doubt be at that Chicago show! In the mean time, check out that calendar and preorder the book here.
Also, be sure to read this interview with Mr. Merritt from a couple months ago that somehow slipped by my radar until now.
