Ok, so “engage” isn’t the right word. You give him a kind of half-frown, replace the graphic novel he scoffed at, and resolve to stop by the library later this week to give it a second, unmolested look. You sidle off toward the literary fiction, licking your wounds. On the way, you pluck a copy of Dave Eggers’ latest off of a nearby table, trying your best to make it look like that was what you were really after all along.
