Matt Richtel on his new novel, Devil's Plaything, grandparents, tech-thrillers and more

Devil's Plaything is equal parts technological thriller and science fiction, but it's also a very human drama about a man's relationship with his grandmother and her past. Author Matt Richtel will be on hand at the Tattered Cover Colfax Avenue at 7:30 p.m. tonight to read from the book and answer questions. We caught up with him to get a few questions of our own answered, including where the idea for the novel came from, Richtel's own relationship with his grandparents and more.
