I’m reading in San Francisco this coming Saturday (June 9th) with…

It’s my honor and privilege to read with Anthony Swofford and Raj Patel and other great writers at Writers With Drinks this Saturday. The show starts at 7:30 sharp and doors open at 6:30. We were going to do assigned seating like how those airlines do it, but instead went for festival seating like how The Who did it. So come early.

It will look like this only without the instruments and with different people

One of the other great honors I have while visiting San Francisco is getting to play a part in Hilary Goldberg’s animated existential saga The Deer In Between.

Michele Tea and Ed Wolf are the deer that decide the fate of human souls http://www.thedeerinbetween.com/

I will be the voice of a morel mushroom that is part of a political underground. Here are some of the mushrooms that seem to be abusing their power and have lots of secret meetings:

I have to say this is one of the highlights of my career so far.  If you need to get caught up on the drama here is:

  1. Vanessa, I have to let you know that your reading last night at The Makeout Room blew me away! What was it that you read from? It was just an incredible bit of writing – something I’ll be thinking about for quite a while – thank you so much for sharing it with us.

    • thank you. It is a piece called “Just Before Elena” that will come out in Tin House this fall. It is part of a linked set of stories that will appear over the next months. Story 31 (which you heard) will be Tin House in Fall. Story #2 in Zyzzyva in Winter and story #3 in SWINK in spring. You were part of a very, very generous audience so thank you again.

  2. I also came here to offer my praise for your reading last night at the Makeout Room. Really enjoyed it! Zazen is next on my reading list.
