New Book - Excerpt

A couple of weeks back I took part in a reading series called Four Stories. Held in a bar/club/dance-space known as The Enormous Room, Four Stories is, according to The Boston Globe, the "hippest reading series in town." Seeing as I never argue with the Boston Globe (at least not when it's making me look good), I'll politely avert my eyes and agree.

Seriously, hip or not, Four Stories is way fun. Rather than making literature all hush hush and precious, it throws it out there with the alcoholic beverages and flirtatious glances of real life, which is where it belongs anyway, not in some church-like mausoleum of a bookstore.

The piece I read is actually an excerpt from my novel-in-progress, "About the Author." I explain why it's called that and the basic story at the beginning of the attached mp3, so I won't repeat myself here. I will say, though, that the theme of the night's reading was "The Forbidden: Tales of Transgressions, Secrets and Sins." Be afraid, be very afraid...
