Bride of Frankenstein

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.


My March, 2012, Reading Schedule

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.

Salvation Mountain

My newest docufiction text from my forthcoming book Death in Texas, “Salvation Mountain,” explores Dewey Birdsong’s monument to Jesus at Slab City.
