It’s been a pretty dull ’08 so far. I’ve left the house exactly three times. But things are heating up (figuratively; it’s cold as tits outside). Next week I’m going to be out every night, most importantly on Wednesday to see and hear my pal Jami Attenberg read from her debut novel, The Kept Man.
But 2008 really gets going for me on February 4 when I read for no more than four minutes at NYC’s bitchin’ Ritalin Reading Series.
You’ll hear way more about this soon, but in March, I’ll be promoting Perfect From Now On in the following ways:
March 1: Release party at Magnetic Field in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, with amazing Guided By Voices tribute band the Textbook Committee
March 3: Reading at Schuler Books in Grand Rapids, Michigan
March 5: Reading at the excellent Kalamazoo Public Library in Michigan!
March 6: Reading at Funny Ha-Ha, the stoopidly awesome Chicago reading series hosted by Claire Zulkey
March 8: Release party at the super-famous 7th Street Entry with GBV cover band the Textbook Committee
March 12: Reading at the best book store in Brooklyn, Book Court
March 16: Reading at the long-running monthly Los Angeles lit-fest Vermin on the Mount — complete with a special St. Paddy’s theme!
Let me know if you’ll be in any of these places on any of those days. I need hecklers!
WHY I’M ANGRY TODAY
One of the six Spice Girls reunion concerts on tap for February out here in the New York area has already sold out.
