SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: ALL ABOUT DICK!
I'll be reading the first 12 pages of the new novel, ALL ABOUT DICK, which I started to keep me sane while finishing WIRE MONKEY. It did not keep me sane but now I'm in too deep to stop. ALL ABOUT DICK: the night just perfect for love, that corner about to be turned, a really bad joke told by God
Writer's House Reading Series Kettle of Fish 59 Christopher Street New York, NY
June 24 7pm
with Carola Dibbel (bohemian slapstick!) and Elizabeth Smith (cowboys and tampons!)
MY PRIVATE CONEY presents IT WAS HER NEW YORK, the short stories that accompany the work-in-progress video and photo collection of the same name (myprivateconey.com - media link - IT WAS HER NEW YORK). The stories and the media explore the tender rubble that holds both my mother, Florence's and New York's soul as one disappears into old age and the other into gentrification. All are real observations and/or experiences with very little tall-tale telling.
Except when it makes the story better.
