Coming soon, an event about which I’m very excited!
On Monday, January 29th, 6-7:30 pm at the Cornelia Street Café, I’ll be reading from two works of fiction: my newly completed novel, The Condor’s Shadow (a story of twisted courage and a struggle for connection) and my recently published novel, Problems of Translation, which Gary Shteyngart called, “an insanely amusing adventure.” And maybe—just maybe—there’ll be also a bit from a book of linked short stories I’m completing just now. (Its working title is Soil, Sand, Stories.)
But there’s more! I’m delighted to be sharing the stage with Lesley Dormen, whom I met at a writer’s conference in Italy eight years ago and have wanted to have as a co-reader ever since. Lesley’s novel, The Best Place To Be, was called “delightfully, crushingly funny” by The New York Times, and her work has appeared in The Atlantic, Ploughshares, The New York Times, and many other publications. She teaches fiction at The Writers Studio here in New York.
I hope you’ll put our upcoming reading on your calendar in red, and persuade your friends to come, too!
Looking forward to seeing you on the 29th!
Did I mention the date? It’s January 29th; a Monday, the time is from 6-7:30 pm; it’s at 29 Cornelia Street, and as usual, a $10 cover will include a free glass of wine.
Take the A, C, E, B, D, F, or M train to West 4th St. Exit at south end of train. Cornelia Street starts at the intersection of West 4th and the west side of Avenue of the Americas (Sixth Avenue). Cafe’s phone: 212.989.9319
