Thanks to everyone who came out to hear me, Stacey D’Erasmo, David Gates, and Tracy Daughtery speak about Donald Barthelme in Madison Square Park last week. What an honor and a privilege to have the space to consider his work; and it sure was enjoyable getting to read that paragraph from “The Zombies.”
August will be an exciting month for me: I have a few pieces coming out, and have been invited to do an interview with Joe Donahue on the Roundtable, my favorite radio show, which broadcasts from WAMC, Northeast Public Radio. (I’m also inordinately fond of WFUV’s show Vin Scelsa’s Idiot’s Delight and, of course, of WNYC’s incomparable Leonard Lopate Show; but as an upstate girl, Joe Donahue and Sarah LaDuke are the hosts I listen to every morning.) I’ll post dates and links when I have them, so please check back soon!
