Notorious rogue Gothamite sampler takes unpleasant detour to clean clocks in the Southland!
Rob Fitterman makes an exception! Long Beach bravo Jane Sprague cuts the ribbon!
Come get a peek at the newest guff factory and prose booster on the block, the POETIC RESEARCH BUREAU in the fetal stage, wriggling like a bookworm in its library music. We'll be building the joint out through the summer, with occasional readings under the heatlamp, only to launch 'big time' in the fall, like stuck-up morning-glories with "good hunch disease"!
Meantime, Ara thinks if we grow beards and promote algorithmic poetry, we may just get into a proper argument. Let's see!
Doors open at 6:30. Reading is 7pm sharp in the theater, and first official pub walk at 8 to abuse your organ meats and carry on the debate!
(Note that Atwater is pre-famous for the highest density of post-chic, murky theme bars in the 5-2-134 triangle. You've never felt "almost there" until you've felt Atwater.)
Phantom Rosebuds is a brand new autobiography of Clifford Irving, a controversial writer, lover, prisoner and film character. His 'signature' book chronicles a subjective trawl through a notorious history -- from his early years as a creative writing teacher, through the Howard Hughes scandal, right up to the moment of the author's appearance in his own narrative. A considerable section of the story is dedicated to Clifford Irving's role in F for Fake, the 1972 film by Orson Welles about illusion, techniques of conviction and the speculative value of art.
