Please come to Jonathan Ames' book reading/signing for his new essay collection, THE DOUBLE LIFE IS TWICE AS GOOD [read details below], which features illustrations by me and a comic book collaboration with our mutual buddy/cartoonist, Nick Bertozzi [which originally appeared in SMITH magazine's NEXT-DOOR NEIGHBOR online anthology].



From Jonathan Ames:

dear kindly people on my email list,

i have a new book out: THE DOUBLE LIFE IS TWICE AS GOOD.

it is a collection of fiction and non-fiction, including the short story, 'bored to death,' which is the basis of the hbo series i've created of the same title and which debuts september 20th.

on thursday, july 16th, at 7pm, at bookcourt, 163 court street, brooklyn, i will be giving my only reading from this new book.

ONE RING ZERO will play some music, including the song i wrote for them, 'the story of the hairy call.'

also, THROWDINI, a world-renowned knife-thrower will throw knives at me to help cut the ribbon, as it were, for this new publication.

here is the amazon thing for the book: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1439102333/ref=s9_simx_gw_s0_p14_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=14B4WTBXDRE1AVCDCJKP&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938631&pf_rd_i=507846

all the best and none of the worst,
