A true living legend of comedy, John Cleese co-founded the landmark British comedy troupe Monty Python and starred in classic films like A Fish Called Wanda and TV series like Fawlty Towers. Now he comes to Boston’s Cutler Majestic Theatre at Emerson College for Not Dead Yet, an evening of revealing, hilarious and sometimes mean-spirited stories from his life and his new autobiography, So, Anyway. He’ll take you behind the scenes of such eminently quotable comedies as Monty Python’s The Life of Brian and The Holy Grail, which served as the inspiration for the Tony-winning Broadway smash Spamalot.

Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda conjure a dark fantastic adventure set in an alternate 1900s Asia
Image Comics is pleased to announce that bestselling writer Marjorie Liu (X-Men, Tiger Eye) and Sana Takeda (Ms. Marvel) are teaming up for an all-new ongoing fantastic adventure set in an alternate 1900s Asia—MONSTRESS.
In MONSTRESS, readers are transported into the early 1900s, where immense Leviathans roam the Earth, wielding unimaginable powers that many have long desired to exploit. When a teenage girl with a mysterious past forms a tenuous psychic bond with the most dangerous of all the Leviathans, she becomes the target of both human and otherworldly authorities who will stop at nothing to possess her—to control her, and control the Lord of the all the Leviathans. What they don’t count on is the courage of the girl herself—and the fact that she is slowly becoming more than human…

Actor and author Jesse Eisenberg appear at the Brattle Theatre on Thursday November 19, 2015 at 6:00 PM to present and sign BREAM GIVE ME HICCUPS!
Ticket available at the link… **SOLD OUT**
Harvard Book Store welcomes JESSE EISENBERG—Academy Award-winning actor, playwright, and contributor for The New Yorker and McSweeney’s—for a presentation of his fiction debut, Bream Gives Me Hiccups.
Taking its title from a group of stories that begin the book, Bream Gives Me Hiccups moves from contemporary L.A. to the dorm rooms of an American college to ancient Pompeii, throwing the reader into a universe of social misfits, re-imagined scenes from history, and ridiculous overreactions. In one piece, a tense email exchange between a young man and his girlfriend is taken over by his sister, who is obsessed with the Bosnian genocide (The situation reminds me of a little historical blip called the Karadordevo agreement); in another, a college freshman forced to live with a roommate is stunned when one of her ramen packets goes missing (she didn’t have “one” of my ramens. She had a chicken ramen); in another piece, Alexander Graham Bell has teething problems with his invention (I’ve been calling Mabel all day, she doesn’t pick up! Yes, of course I dialed the right number – 2!).
United by Eisenberg’s gift for humor and character, and grouped into chapters that open with illustrations by award-winning cartoonist Jean Jullien, the witty pieces collected in Bream Gives Me Hiccups explore the various insanities of the modern world, and mark the arrival of a fantastically funny, self-ironic, and original voice.

Actor Ethan Hawke appears at the Brattle Theatre on Thursday November 12, 2015 at 6:00 PM to sign his new book RULES FOR A KNIGHT! Tickets available at the link…
Harvard Book Store welcomes ETHAN HAWKE, four-time Academy Award nominee and the author of two novels, for a presentation of his book Rules for a Knight, an unforgettable fable about a Knight’s journey and a short guide to what gives life beauty and meaning.
It is 1483, and Sir Thomas Lemuel Hawke, a Cornish knight, is about to ride into battle. On the eve of his departure, he composes a letter to his four young children, consisting of twenty virtues that provide instruction on how to live a noble life, and on all the lessons, large and small, that he might have imparted to them himself were he not expecting to die on the battlefield.
“Why am I alive? Where was I before I was born? What will happen to me when I die? Whatever well our lives are drawn from, it is deep, wild, mysterious, and unknowable . . . “Rules for a Knight is many things: a code of ethics; an intimate record of a lifelong quest; a careful recounting of a knight’s hardest won lessons, deepest aspirations, and most richly instructive failures; and an artifact, a relic of a father’s exquisite love.
Drawing on the ancient teachings of Eastern and Western philosophy and religion, on literature, and poetry, and on the great spiritual and political writings of our time, Ethan Hawke has written a parable that—in the story of a young man’s journey toward a life of authenticity and meaning—captures the instinctive movement of the heart toward truth and beauty.
