this sunday, head to the east village (after soaking up some sun at prospect park or the highline or outdoors somewhere for brunch) in order to hear some of the early contributors to the literary journal black clock, started by one of my favorite writers, steve erickson. erickson and ventura have been two of my favorites for many years, to some extent because both so deftly weave together the esoteric and the vernacular, writing compulsively, revisiting terrain, self-referential, full of echoes and allusions and references to the american pop culture and political backdrop. our continuum in all our manic ambivalence, conceit and fury. sunday’s roster: samuel r. delany, rick moody, lynne tillman, joanna scott and shelley jackson.
4-6 pm, + ample time for drinking
