The first public readings from Only Revolutions took place this evening at Skylight Books in Los Feliz. Exploration Z was proud to be there and have plenty of video highlights coming your way when we get back to our homebase later in the week.
For now, a brief review of some of the highlights.
MZD did five readings from Only Revolutions. He only read from Sam.
Whether or not this is a ghost story, I will leave up to you...
Mark answered about his writing process that he uses the Jane Goodall method. He sits in the same place in the jungle and waits for the gorillas to approach and finally they do. He writes everyday. His process starts at 5:30AM with meditation and goes on for at least ten hours. He answered a bit about the deliberate colors for the book to help you not lose your place. Someone remarked that the layout of the book reminded them of the bible. Mark thinks it looks like a road.
Poe and several members of different incarnations of the Poe band were in attendance, as were several of Poe's Angry Psychos and several houseofleaves.com forum regulars.
It was a great turnout, a good crowd, and a hot debut for Danielewski's sophomore effort.
