I met my fiancée at a BOMB magazine after-party. (Thanks Paul!) So naturally my expectations are high for my own first fête at BOMB. I want this one to be a memorable blowout with equal parts high culture, loosened tongues, and low wit. Fortunately it’s a killer lineup:
Claudia Rankine, whose book Citizen is so mind-blowing it’s been longlisted for a National Book Award in Poetry, even though it could have just as easily been classified as Nonfiction. Her interview with Lauren Berlant‘s been among the most popular from BOMB’s Fall issue.
Frederic Tuten, whose story “Winter, 1965” hits incredibly close to home for every young writer in New York.
James Hoff & Eli Keszler. They’re going to play music, and if their interview is any indication, it’s going to be epic. We’ll provide earplugs.
Plus free drinks courtesy of Sixpoint! It’s going to be a great night. Hope to see you there.
