Tonight editor Stephen Elliott will be at Skylight with a handful of contributors to the new Stumbling and Raging: More Politcally Inspired Fiction: Neal Pollack, Aimee Bender, Chris Abani and Eric Orner. The collection is kind of massive, which means that more writers have got parts of their brains working on politics than I thought.
Over at LAist, last week we ran an interview with Janet Fitch, the author of White Oleander. She describes her upcoming book as "Fall of the House of Usher set in 1981 punk rock LA," which is a mighty good elevator speech. Looking at it now, I see I let it go live without fixing some atrocious formatting. So I'm off for some blog repair.
