Author name please. Read about him recently via the Zite Ipad app but have forgotten his surname. First name Alex, he won a book deal for his first novel and looked poised to be a literary star until the events of 9/11 robbed his contemporaneous book launch of all impact. He's subsequently written another novel and I think also a short story collection. He teaches somewhere ;-) thanks
