"He has written the press release in third-person..."

I receive dozens of press releases a day at my job, so I got a laugh out of this mock release from author and senior editor of Booklist Online Keir Graff, to promote his fourth novel, The Price of Liberty. Highlights:

Misspellings and grammatical errors throughout are should contributing to this effect.

As is customary, key information has been set in boldface.

"For my fourth novel, I wanted to try something different," Graff quotes himself as saying.

The Price of Liberty's launch party will be Thursday, September 9, 5:30-7:30pm. After Words Books, 23 E. Illinois St., 312-464-1110.
