The New York Observer's Christian Lorentzen reported on Žižek's Cooper Union event on Monday, and came away with some quotes:
A long line of fans formed around the stage at Cooper Union to have Slavoj Žižek sign books. They rattled off their names for the philosopher's dedication.
"Ian," said one.
"Like the writer," said Mr. Žižek, "McEwan."
"Kelvin," said another.
"Like the stupid temperature."
