Rick Moody's novels The Ice Storm and Garden State earned him national attention and Hollywood movie adaptations, as well as a Pushcart Editor's Choice Award. Now, he turns away from the suburbs and uses his pen to poke at Hollywood's seedy underbelly in his latest novel, The Diviners. Joining him this evening is David Foster Wallace, whose essay for Gourmet magazine about the ethics of lobstercide caused a stir among foodies and is now the namesake of his essay collection, Consider the Lobster. Proceeds benefit the 826 Valencia Scholarship Program. (SD)
