Sorry for the lack of blogging, it's been busy. Will post some pics here, but you can see some of the umpteen cupcake picnic photos I took on Flickr.
It's a busy week, and I really hope you will be coming out to In The Flesh at Happy Ending, 302 Broome Street, on Thursday 6/19 from 8-10. Several of my readers have stunning new books out; I'm in proofreading hell and also writing away so haven't had time to read them in full, but Scott Pomfret's Since My Last Confession, his memoir about being gay and Catholic, is hilarious and looks quite interesting, while anyone who loved Cecilia Tan's Black Feathers will also want to devour her new book White Flames. And so many others - I adored Bob Smith's novel Selfish and Perverse and am gonna ply him with drink tickets in an effort to get him to write another novel!
But first...on Wednesday, editor Ellen Sussman is reading from her new anthology Dirty Words at the Museum of Sex. I interviewed her for Penthouse about her wonderful collection that blends literary essays with snapshots of and ruminations about sex from numerous familiar writers. If you are at all entertained by sex, you'll want to read it. Plus it's got a great cover!
Check out who's reading with her:
Lisa Selin Davis
Mary-Ann Tirone Smith
