Out on Bainbridge Island

Thursday at Eagle Harbor Book Company. Yeah, this was a lot of fun. A wide-ranging discussion with Claire Dederer that boiled over with rude thoughts and inspired notions, in particular a complete trashing of Pink Floyd, a defense of unlikable protagonists, and the repeated usage of the word "vicariosity". Free Rolling Rock tallboys drove the crowd into a near-frenzy. Apparently it gets a little wild on the island. Here I am explaining why I always wear a black shirt but do not, in fact, excel at "Folsom Prison Blues" during karaoke.

Lit Fix 3rd Anniversary

Lit Fix was a lot of fun the other night. Thanks especially to Chop Suey and Mia Lipman for organizing and letting me bust out some Motorcycle Love.

KC Review

Cool review of Welcome Thieves in the Kansas City Star. "...a collection of 12 short stories that revel in philosophy, music and violence to produce images portraying the human struggle with meaning in contemporary life.

The character-driven tales are darkly comedic, filled with...characters so compelling that they are at once savage and powerless, redemptive and sardonic."

Lit Fix Tonight 7pm

Yes, a mere 11 hours from now this is going down at the mighty Chop Suey. I will be reading a story that mentions the Thompson Twins unironically, Black Flag rhetorically, and the Tao of Pooh metaphorically. Really. Snacks and drinks, plus all proceeds go to the Literary Council of Seattle. Dude, these Lit Fix events rock: packed and rowdy and fun. Come and give Mia Lipman a hug.

End of the Tour, End of an Era

Well, the tour comes to an end tonight at KGB Bar & Lit Mag in NYC. I'll be reading with Diana Spechler (Skinny, New York Times) and Teddy Wayne (GQ, The Love Song of Jonny Valentine). Plus, Robert Burke Warren (Fleshtones, Perfectly Broken) will be on the turntable and mic. Snow, wind, rain? Man, if you live anywhere from Hialeah to Bangor, you'd be a total Trotsky to miss it. Beware a prose-putsch! Hardliners will be toppled! Also, snacks and soda.

Reading Tonight!

Tonight the mighty Joshua Mohr and I will read at Village Books in Bellingham. Immediately afterward, I will be "In Conversation with Joshua Mohr", which means we'll sit across from each other Dick Cavett-style and talk about craft. By which I mean pretentiously hog the microphone. No, I mean craft. Totally craft! Like, how to find an agent and write dynamic sentences and stuff. Is it worth driving up north for? Only if you love literature and life and being fed metaphorical grapes at one of the best bookstores in America. No pressure.

Washington Independent Review of Books

Hard to argue with this review from Washington Review of Books, "A ragtag collection of challenging, off-the-wall, brilliant tales." And it goes on from there.

On Salon

At least for this moment, we appear to be on the front page of Salon. Yes, directly below a giant gem-studded purple dildo. Which I suppose is just about right. Re-reading the interview now, I have to admit to being less than pleased that Jonathan Evison is consistently bolder than me. That's font humor. Get it? Font humor.
