Sloane Crosley

When: Tue., May 10, 7 p.m. 2011

New York City, Portugal, Paris, Alaska - wherever she goes, there Sloane Crosley is, armed with little more than self-deprecation, quite literally: The author of I Was Told There Would Be Cake and, now, How Did you Get This Number, has a disability called severe temporal-spatial deficit, which renders math and maps and analog clocks total mysteries. Her new book wittily tracks her voyage into a fully neurotic adulthood; she'll read from it on Tuesday, May 10, at Diesel (5433 College Ave., Oakland). 7 p.m., free. 510-653-9965 or
