Everything Flows Kiss As Many Women As You Can Zero Fade (Curbside Splendor)
Join us for a dynamic reading from Curbside Splendor as three writers present three very different works, a collection of experimental short stories, an art book with detachable pages and a YA novel set in the mid-90s.
James Greer is the author of the novels Artificial Light (LHotB/Akashic 2006) and The Failure (Akashic 2010), and the non-fiction book Guided By Voices: A Brief History (Grove Press), a biography of a band for which he played bass guitar. He’s written or co-written movies for Lindsay Lohan, Jackie Chan, and Steven Soderbergh, among others. He is a Contributing Editor for the Los Angeles Review of Books, and plays guitar and sings in a new band called Détective after the Godard film of that name. His new book, Everything Flows, is a collection of experimental stories with a foreword written by Robert Pollard, lead singer of Guided By Voices.
Franki Elliot is the author of Piano Rats (Curbside Splendor, 2011) and her newest book Kiss As Many Women As You Can (Curbside Splendor, 2013) is a beautiful book of "typewriter stories" - an art book with full-colored detachable postcards adorned with Chicago artist Shawn Stucky's ethereal paintings.
Chris L. Terry's debut novel Zero Fade is written for young adults and set in the heart of the 90s. It follows 13-year-old Kevin Phifer as he deals with "wack hair-cuts, bullies, last-year fly gear, his uncle Paul coming out as gay, and being grounded."
