 Upcoming Event

Thursday, May 15, 2014 07:00 PM
Welcome three of Portland's most talented authors as they discuss books near and dear to their hearts that have long languished out of print and are now available again through Pharos Editions: The Lists of the Past, a technically mesmerizing collection of stories by Julie Hayden; The Tattooed Heart and My Name Is Rose, two emotionally charged literary novels by Theodora Keogh; and Crazy Weather, an American Indian coming-of-age tale by Charles McNichols that serves as "an important document in our cultural history." Cheryl Strayed, Lidia Yuknavitch, and the legendary Ursula K. Le Guin will explore the history, context, and reasons they chose to introduce these titles and help bring them back to readers once more. The panel discussion will be moderated by editor-in-chief of Bitch Media Kjerstin Johnson. This event is sponsored by Bitch Media: Feminist Response to Pop Culture.

Please note: Signed copies will be signed by the title's respective curator and not by the original author.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With an intelligence that scalds every pretense and surface, Lidia Yuknavitch's camera pans across subjects as varied as Keanu Reeves and Siberian prison laborers. She zooms in on drug addiction, crime, sex of all flavors, trauma, torture, rock and roll, and art, all the while revealing untried angles and alien shapes. She traces the inner lives of characters teetering on edges-death, birth, love, understanding-but never flinching at the spectacle of their violent descent. This collection represents a verbal cinematographer at her best as she captivates the reader with a prose style that is mesmerizing and fluid, deep and dangerous.

Review:

"One of Yuknavitch's primary talents is to make the deep, often hidden flaws of our culture — those toxic waste dumps — explosively manifest." Rain Taxi

Review:

"Yuknavitch's imaginative stories have a penchant for irony. They delve deep into a materialistic culture that is not just obsessed with itself, but obsessed with its obsessions." American Book Review

Review:

"Not since Kathy Acker has a woman writer scarred the page with such intelligence, horror, and wit." The Portland Review Literary Journal

Synopsis:

Short fictions that examine meaning through a cinematic lens.
