Dmitry Samarov at Myopic Books


Last night Myopic Books hosted Dmitry Samarov reading from his new book, Hack: Stories from a Chicago Cab.

The book launch is getting a lot of coverage, so if you're interested in reading more about Samarov, you can read from his blog by the same name or one of these recent features. He'll also be reading at a variety of other events in the next few weeks.
