Kate Zambreno reads from her debut novel O Fallen Angel (Chiasmus Press) at Bluestockings Radical Books–a very cool progressive bookstore in the LES–along with Masha Tupitsyn (Beauty Talk and Monsters) and Kim Rosenfield (Good Morning Midnight).
Friday, April 30 at 7pm at Bluestockings, 72 Allen Street, New York, NY.
Kate’s novel is an American triptych inspired by Francis Bacon’s “Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion,” also a grotesque homage to Mrs. Dalloway. She writes the blog Frances Farmer Is My Sister, which will inspire a collection of essays to be published by Semiotext(e)’s Active Agents series in Fall 2011. She is also an editor at Nightboat Books.
Here’s a blurb from one of our favorite former Big Other contributors:
“Haunting and visionary, Kate Zambreno’s O FALLEN ANGEL examines the suburban family with ruthless elegance. Here is a novel, done and undone, a brazen mirror reflecting the 21st century.”
