Paco Ahlgren

Debut novelist reads from Discipline

With all due respect to our collective human intellect, the average person doesn’t exactly get quantum physics. So when you not only get quantum physics but then decide it’s a great idea to seek parallels between the field and those of economics, East Asian religious theory and psychological science, you’re a rare bird indeed. Paco Ahlgren, who will be reading from and signing his debut novel, Discipline, today at Borders, is one such creature. His book, essentially about a man’s self-discovery, entails trips through time and multiple universes, and all the while forges connections among economics, religion and, of course, physics. Whether or not your own endeavors are a bit more modest, Ahlgren’s should be an interesting voice to hear — even if just to appreciate your own lazy Sunday a little bit more.
Sun., Aug. 26, 2 p.m.
