Viewing Tucson from afar

This is not Tucson.
What an adventure. I've been appointed the Picador Guest Professor in Literature for summer 2011 at the University of Leipzig, in Germany. So here I sit, blogging (oh dear, lord help me) from a Starbucks in the Innerstadt, less than a kilometer from the final resting place of Johann Sebastian Bach. Believe me, if there were wireless access at the Thomaskirche, I'd be logging on from one of the pews in that magnificent place.

But not to worry: I've recruited guest readers to continue the weekly readings at the city council meetings, beginning with drama students at Tucson High Magnet School.

Auf Wiedersehen for now--
