>It’s time to meet each other

Fans of AMIGO and John Sayles filmmaker, meet the A MOMENT IN THE SUN crowd. John is a novelist and a short story writer too. The sticker on the cover of A MOMENT IN THE SUN calls John Sayles “a master storyteller”. That’s it, in film or on the page.

This is by way of saying that for the next 40 days AMIGO blog is expanding to include John’s novel. Follow our progress across the country and back as John and I stop at independent bookstores East to West and back again.

We won’t lose sight of AMIGO and you’ll be hearing about plans for its release in the Philippines in July and the US in August.

You’ll be hearing that a large part of A MOMENT IN THE SUN is set during the Philippine-American War, which is the setting of AMIGO. Stay tuned to the blog and you’ll hear and see John talk about the origins of both stories.

I hope you’ll introduce yourselves to me if we see you on the road. Now go buy the book at an independent bookstore or from McSweeney’s http://www2.mcsweeneys.net/books/amomentinthesun.

See ya.
