Flavorpill on tonight's reading:
Park's observational talent has served him well during his time as an editor for both The Believer and The New York Ghost. His debut novel, Personal Days, applies his literary sensibility to a tale of office angst that's influenced in equal parts by Ricky Gervais and Kurt Vonnegut. Tonight, Park teams up with Leni Zumas — whose debut collection of short stories, Farewell Navigator, was recently published by Open City — for a reading hosted by St. Marks Bookshop. Both authors have a wry and insightful approach, imbuing the perennial search for meaning with fresh humor.
Ah yes...I remember that time when I was an editor for the Ghost...before they gave me the boot!
See you tonight at 7:30 at Solas!
