Please join us for a reading and celebration of two extraordinary literary achievements: Lawrence Shainberg (Ambivalent Zen, Memories of Amnesia, Brain Surgeon: An Intimate View of His World) reads from Crust (Two Dollar Radio, October), praised as "one of the most perverse and single-minded satires I've read" by Jonathan Lethem and described by Norman Mailer as "an academic send-up... wild as sin"; Anne Landsman (The Devil's Chimney) reads from The Rowing Lesson (Soho Press, November), which provoked an astonished New York Times Book Review critic to note, "Landsman is a gambler, and here she risks everything" in a feat that, The Guardian (UK) declared, "confirms her reputation as a major new voice."
