L.A.'s original alternative book club.
"Nobody Reads In L.A." was designed to be the "Book Club for the Nightclub set"
Our Mission, to put books in to hands accustomed to cocktails....
This Fall we relaunch the club with a modern vibe to appeal to the urban reader
We also expand our reach to West Hollywood as Book Soup joins the fray.
Our focus will be on novels that spawned iconic films.
(Many of which you may not have known were books in the first place!)
Our Fall opener has us cracking the spine of the modern fairy tale
"Wild At Heart" by Barry Gifford.
This high octane true love story surrounds the romance between
modern literature's "Southern Gothic Romeo & Juliet"
Sailor Ripley and Lula Pace Fortune.
Made in to a remarkable cinema by David Lynch in
1990 who called it "a really modern romance in a violent world – a picture about finding love in hell.".
"Wild At Heart" had the world listening to Chris Isaak for the first time
and had everyone sayin'
"You got me hotter than Georgia asphalt."
As with most movies though...you only got half of the story.
Join us as we follow our star crossed lovers
on an adventure filled with my favorite M's
Murder,Mayhem and Make-out
A LOT OF MAKE OUT...
Our first meeting of the reconvened club will be
Wed. October 17th from 7-9
at Casey's 613 S. Grand Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90017 213.629.2353
This classic Irish pub- (that will be the site of the 2008 "Blooms Day")
has big tables and a great bar.
I will also be hosting a meeting in
West Hollywood on thurs. October 25th from 7-9
