6. Tell him you missed his reading because you had to buy a book.
5. Ask him to pack one of his books the next time he comes east so you can check it out.
4. Admit you don’t read his books, but copy him with each of your never-to-be-published letters to "The New Yorker."
3. Ask him to critique your memoir and, after having received his four pages of notes, never mention it again, except to tell him each time one of your other readers says it will make a terrific movie.
2. Come to his book launch party, schmooze with his guests, eat his food, borrow his book from someone who bought it, and, when you receive an invitation to the party for his next book, remind him to invite that person, presumably so you can borrow the new one.
1. Never fail to tell him, each time the best selling author with whom you went to summer camp in 1958 releases a new novel, what a terrific guy he was – brilliant, funny, and a hellova point guard, despite having been only five-two.
Just a few personal favorites. Feel free to add your own.
