Do you really want to see your favorite author mouthing off at Barnes & Noble? Young writers Nicole Krauss and Fiona Maazel don't, either. Their intimate, eclectic Russian Samovar Readings Series has the neurotic flair of a labor of obsessive love, with tiny audiences, tiny glasses of vodka downstairs, and a tiny price tag.
