On September 14th, I’ll be partaking in FSG’s Lit Crawl event (Fontana’s on 105 Eldridge Street, 8PM). I’ll be reading alongside David Grand and Katherine Faw Morris, and there will be music by FSG’s house band, The Savage Detectives (best band name ever?I think it might be…). Come hang out!
“Three Things You Should Know About Peggy Paula” by Lindsay Hunter.
It should be noted that I am stealing shamelessly from Electric Literature’s Recommended Reading, where the great Roxane Gay recommends and introduces this badass story by fellow FSG-er Lindsay Hunter, and for good reason. “Three Things You Should Know About Peggy Paula” opens Hunter’s new collection, DON’T KISS ME, and it is such a glorious gut punch of a story. Read the story. Read Roxane’s glowing introduction. Get the book. It will change you.
