It's not even out yet, but the cover of E. Lynn Harris' new book, Basketball Jones, already has me breaking promises to myself--I'm not gay, but I always vowed it'd be Tom Brady. But hey, the book is about a professional athlete who plays for the other team, so maybe I'm just getting into the spirit of Harris' latest exploration of the intersection between sexual freedom and social pressure. If you find the cover inviting enough to give it a read (or admit an unorthodox celebrity crush in print), join the author for a reading, discussion and autograph session 7 p.m. Thursday at Barnes & Noble, 7700 W. Northwest Highway. Call 214-739-1124.
