Culture Shock

Rock, Roll and Write—The idea behind the First Fiction Tour is to bring a little rock and roll glam to a staged literary event. Think of it as Lollapalooza for the writerly crowd. The 2005 version of the tour comes to the St. Clair Winery & Bistro (901 Rio Grande NW) this Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 8 p.m. It features three first-time authors, all of whom have a flair for live performance. Lisa Selin Davis is the author of Belly, a novel about an ex-con druggie gambler named William "Belly" O'Leary. Karen Olsson is the author of Waterloo, which tells the tale of a thirtysomething guy who's trying to make sense of a screwed up love life in Austin, Texas. Finally, Victoria Vinton is the author of The Jungle Law, a fictionalized account of Rudyard Kipling's life after he moved to Vermont in 1892. Numerous food and drink specials will be available, so come on down, stuff yourself, get a good buzz going and give a listen to the future of American literature. For more information, call 344-8139.

Book Review

Bombs Bursting

Death, Etc.

Harold Pinter has been fighting a battle with cancer of the esophagus for three years, but his printed voice hasn't weakened. The recently crowned British Nobel laureate, revered for the elegant power and strangeness of plays like The Birthday Party and The Homecoming, has eschewed stage work in this time so that he can advocate for peace.

Book Review

Freak Out

The Brief and Frightening Reign of Phil

I'm not sure what sort of drugs juice through George Saunders' veins, but I'd love to get a line on his supplier. His previous books—the short story collections Pastoralia and CivilWarLand in Bad Decline, and the kiddie book The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip—haven't exactly been conventional fare. Saunders has always had an enviable talent for controlled weirdness. In his latest project, he uses that talent to amusing if somewhat flimsy effect.
