Next Wednesday, August 22, there's an event for the Marooned book at Housing Works Used Book Cafe in downtown Manhattan (126 Crosby Street, just below Houston). It's 7pm, a bunch of contributors will be reading from their essays (Rob Harvilla, Scott Seward, Daphne Carr, Tom Breihan, Kandia Crazy Horse, plus editor Phil Freeman naturally), there'll be Q and A, and it's FREE. Unfortunately I can't participate as I'm off on our annual hols (same place as ever year, Broadstairs, Mrs Pitkin, fried bread etc etc). Shame as I had a whole riff mentally prepared, wasn't going to read from my Solid Air essay, but talk about why I chose that album, reasons that relate to the role of critics and criticism, and specifically that Bloosm-ian agon between generations that Marooned dramatises through its joust with Stranded ... perhaps i'll riff it out here at a later date
