James J. Patterson Shares a New Essay on Episode 7 of LFTRR
Hobnob with your favorite fellow wizard on episode 7 of Live from the Reading Room
The latest episode of James J. Patterson's LFTRR revisits one of our favorite recurring characters, the trickster deity Hermes.
"Hermes is a crazy cat," says Patterson, "He steals what's been stolen only to put it back; he lies to you only to get you back on track."
The essay, "Hermes at the Kakistocracy Hotel," will appear in Patterson's upcoming collection, Junk Shop Window.
Check out episodes of Live from the Reading Room every Monday at 4PM EDT over on JJP's Facebook page.
