Kate Zambreno reads on Friday in NYC

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).

The Deets:

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.”
