I’m performing a live lit piece tomorrow at Chicago’s Duly Noted! Come listen to music and storytelling (including my tale of a prank call gone wrong… or deliciously right, depending on how you look at it).
By day, Cynthia Robinson is an art historian based in New York and a professor of Medieval and Islamic Art at Cornell University. By night/ any other time, she’s one of my favorite new authors. We talk about writing, not writing, and her new novel Birds of Wonder.
Justin and I talk about Internet tax, dangerous playgrounds, and naked old people. Plus, a beauty tip for people like me who can never find the patience to wait for their nails to dry. Cheers!
Come watch comedians share in our writerly misery at the new monthly Den Theatre showcase named after the famous Faulkner truism. Once a comedian has told a joke on the Killing Your Darlings stage, they can never tell that joke on the stage again.
A professional wrestling rumble may be the land of the body slam, but following a bout of the rumblies in my tummy, I found it to be an surprisingly cathartic reminder of how important body love can be. … Also, there was a “street fight” a la The Wrestler with Mickey Rourke. So that was fucking rad.
