LIMINAL PRESENTS: DAPHNE GOTTLIEB’S BAY AREA BOOK TOUR

FB Event Page

LIMINAL and the infamous poet, Daphne Gottlieb are pairing up to debut her punch-to-the-gut new novel Pretty Much Dead.

Do you want to host? Reading series, books stores, venues and creative pairings welcome!

LIMINAL information on upcoming workshops, events and opportunities will be available at each reading.

Want to host? Have questions? Email: booktours@theliminalcenter.com

Daphne Gottlieb stitches together the ivory tower and the gutter just using her tongue. She is the award-winning author of ten books including the new collection of short stories, Pretty Much Dead. Previous works include Dear Dawn: Aileen Wuornos in her Own Words, a collection of letters from Death Row by the “first female serial killer” to her childhood best friend. She is also the author of five books of poetry, editor of two anthologies, and, with artist Diane DiMassa, the co-creator of the graphic novel Jokes and the Unconscious. She is the winner of the Audre Lorde Award for Poetry, the Firecracker Alternative Book Award, and is a five-time finalist for the Lambda Literary Award. She lives in San Francisco.

About Pretty Much Dead:
Beyond the surface glitter of tech wealth currently overwhelming San Francisco are the interstice communities that have barely survived the onslaught. In the streets, in transient hotels and rent-controlled buildings, the residents settle and search. And those who work for them settle, search, and try to hold on in the city at the edge of the world.
In these stories, Daphne Gottlieb chronicles inner and outer worlds, shedding light on the significance of a cat, the larger meaning of a parking ticket, the violent mutability of an indoor hurricane, the contents of a bag as the owner stalks like a wounded tiger though the streets, dragging the memory of her objects through the collection itself. Artful, heartrending, clear-eyed and darkly magical, Pretty Much Dead is part fable, part witness, and part chorus with the voices that are only heard when they start to yell.
