Meet Jon Ronson

Here's one for your diary - Jon Ronson will be signing copies of his new book Out of the Ordinary: True Tales of Everyday Craziness at Waterstones (Cardiff) on Monday 27th November at 7.30pm. There will also be a discussion about the book beforehand which should be a laugh.

The new work is a collection of Ronson's journalism which unlike previous publications (Them: Adventures with Extremists and The Men Who Stare at Goats) focuses on the weirdness found in domestic and ordinary situations as opposed to on the lunatic fringe.

Word to the wise though - you've got to buy a ticket (£3) in advance which is then redeemable against the purchase of the book at the event.

Although there is more than a touch of Ronsonian madness in buying a ticket to see a bloke from Roath reading a book in Cardiff, trust me, it'll be worth it in the end. And an autographed copy of Out of the Ordinary: True Tales of Everyday Craziness will make a cool Xmas pressie, so grab a ticket now before those pesky students get 'em all.
