Chip Off The Old Clive
Dirk Cussler is the son and protege of author Clive Cussler, as well as the namesake of his father's famous protagonist, Dirk Pitt. In fact, father and son have co-written the past few Pitt novels, including the latest installment in the best-selling series, Arctic Drift. In this adventure, Dirk--the character, not the son--is thrown into the middle of a conflict between the U.S and Canada over energy. The last time someone imagined war between the U.S. and Canada, we were gifted with Michael Moore's brilliant B-movie Canadian Bacon, starring the late John Candy as Sheriff Bud Boomer. If the Cusslers even approach that greatness, they're sure to have another best-seller on their hands. Father and son sign Arctic Drift 7 p.m. Thursday at Barnes & Noble, 7700 West Northwest Highway. Call 214-739-1124.
