Announcing The Originals Series

Announcing a project very near and dear to me, several months in the works. First, a bit of preamble.

Everyone knows most author readings are boring. And everyone knows most book trailers are terrible. Why not find a solution for both?

FSG is partnering with GQ to try something different: authors and musicians in conversation, hosted by David Rees (Get Your War On, Artisanal Pencil Sharpening, Kale City), in an intimate West Village loft space. We’ll film each event and edit it down to a compelling short film for broadcast online.

The first event? November 8th, with John Jeremiah Sullivan, author of Pulphead, and Brooklyn’s own Caveman.

(If you haven’t heard of Pulphead yet, clearly you don’t know me. I’ve been praising it for months. Now places like the New York Times and NPR are celebrating it too. If there’s any justice in the world, this book’ll EGOT itself. [Somehow.])

Here’s the official invite, designed by Rodrigo Corral:

RSVP Here.

  1. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your website.

    It seems like some of the written text within your posts are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if
    this is happening to them too? This may be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before. Cheers
