Wednesday, May 9 Tod Goldberg reads

Tonight at 8 PM on Bibliocracy:  TOD GOLDBERG.  He is an eclectic writer of both mystery and literary fiction, novels and short stories and essays, a writer unafraid of sentiment and emotion, but also unshy about irony and humor. My guest reader tonight, in a performance edition of the show, is Tod Goldberg, author of the novels Living Dead Girl), a finalist for the L A Times Book Prize, Fake Liar Cheat, and the popular Burn Notice series as well as the short story collections Simplify and Other Resort Cities. His short fiction appears widely and has received Special Mention for the Pushcart Prize and Distinguished Story of the Year in Best American Mystery Stories. Essays, journalism, and criticism appear regularly including in the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and Las Vegas CityLife .  I hosted him on Bibliocracy upon publication of his most recent excellent short story collection, Other Resort CitiesGoldberg holds an MFA in Creative Writing & Literature from Bennington College and directs the Low Residency MFA Program in Creative Writing and Writing for the Performing Arts at the University of California, Riverside.  Tonight Tod Goldberg reads, in full, his essay “When They Let Them Bleed.”  Thanks for listening.  Fund drive starts next week!  Please plan on calling in during the 8-9 literary arts hour.  I’ll be offering terrific books to say thank you for your support of this show and of KPFK.
