Such an extraordinary reading at the Octopus Literary Salon in Oakland last night. I loved everyone's work! Nancy Au, Melissa Cistaro, Micah Perks, Peg Alford Pursell, Monica Wesolowska, Olga Zilberbourg: they were every single one of them wonderful. A big thank you to Peg for bringing us all together (photo on the right below).
Peg read from her new collection of luminous flash-length prose Show Her a Flower, a Bird, A Shadow, which I just read recently and admire profoundly. And I was able to buy Micah Perks' novel What Becomes Us, which I can't wait to read.
