Thomas Gammarino: Reading Big in Japan at Sophia Books

Click here to listen to Tom read from his debut novel Big in Japan at Sophia Books.

Great audio recording of Thomas Gammarino, author of Big in Japan: A Ghost Story, published by Chin Music Press, reading at Vancouver’s Sophia Books in mid-January.

Buy Big in Japan.

Great crowd, excellent story, it was lots of fun.

The entire Chin Music Crew came up from Seattle to support the event.

There was a full room, delicious sushi and sake and everyone trooped off for further food and drinks afterward.

An awesome reading with a great introduction by Sophia Books owner and resident maestro, Marc Fournier.

If you haven’t seen any Chin Music Press books please take a look at their website and if you live in a neighborhood with a good independent bookstore that knows their stuff, ask them if they have any Chin Music books.

Stay tuned for the Books on the Radio interviews with Tom, Bruce and Jennifer later this spring.

    Thanks Sean. The Chin Music road trip north of the border was well worth it. Sophia Bookstore is unique in its approach — maybe it shows the way for other bookstores. Be more idiosyncratic, not less!
