So this happened

Me and Louis CK together at last!

Zoo City got a sneaky surprise cameo for oh at least ten seconds on the darkly brilliant comedy show Louie (episode 4, season 3) during one of sweetest and most awkward romantic scenes ever, when the eponymous hero asks deadly cute bookstore employee, Parker Posey, out on a date.

I like how it’s sticking out, just slightly, as if it’s about to do a Ghostbusters Library Scene on his head.

The scene was filmed in The Community Bookstore in Park Slope, Brooklyn, which I happened to visit a lot when I lived in New York in 2000/2001.

Random happy surprises of the universe make me happy.

    Completely brilliant, Lauren. Louis CK and Parker Posey - doesn't get better!

    Nice work. Valuable publicity. It all works toward a critical mass. P.

    Ooh ooh ooh ooh. But what is going on with that spine? Title and author name are travelling in different directions? It's quirky and rather cool.
