I don’t mean to be so self-promoting but it really ought to be an enjoyable and amusing month. And who knows, maybe a good novel will come of it all. If not, we’ll all have a good laugh together. The opening is tommorrow night in L.I.C.
3quark readers get in free (of course, so does everyone else). Here’s the preview from Ed Park at the Village Voice.
Georges Simenon could write a novel in 11 days; according to a since debunked legend, he once finished an entire book in a day, enclosed David Blaine–like in a clear room while the public watched. Beginning May 7, Flux Factory’s “living installation” Novel puts three authors—Grant Bailie, Ranbir Sidhu, and former Voicean Laurie Stone—in three different enclosed environments for 30 days. Visitors can watch them scribble or stew from 3 to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and from noon to 4 p.m. on weekends. On June 4, the writers come out of the chrysalis having completed a brand-new novel.
