We’ll be making a crash landing in New York this Sunday, Sept 16th at 5:30 at the Zinc Bar. Michelle Naka Pierce and me, reading from new books, and a standing invitation from me to you, asking (no, scratch that) begging for your best, most considered verbal abuse! Think of it: tell off a stranger and get a reward! What could be better? Tell you what: why don’t you practice a couple of times in front of the bathroom mirror, and once you’ve worked yourself into a seething rage, come on down to the Zinc Bar and let me have it!
