My latest (and final) docufiction text from my forthcoming book Death in Texas, “Bride of Frankenstein,” looks at the monster’s inspirations — Byron, Shelley, Mary Shelley.
Recently I gave an interview to Gina Jacobs about OD, which became an article published in the San Diego State University magazine March 5.
March also marks the beginning of my mini-book tour for OD, sandwiched into SDSU’s Spring Break, when I will do a few readings and book signings in NYC. If you live in the area, I welcome you to either of these venues.
I will read at two Washington Heights, Manhattan bookstores. At Word Up Community Bookshop on Saturday March 24, 7 PM, I will use OD and my other writings to address the theme “crisis art.” At Le Chéile on Tuesday March 27, 8 pm, the theme will be “Story Anti-Story.” I will give both readings with writer Patricia Eakins.
My newest docufiction text from my forthcoming book Death in Texas, “Salvation Mountain,” explores Dewey Birdsong’s monument to Jesus at Slab City.
