On Bibliocracy at 8 PM on 90.7 FM KPFK Radio, VICTORIA PATTERSON. Tonight a special program in an occasional series of performance editions of the show, part of my continuing effort to present and collect work by area Southern California writers of short fiction I admire, on the only place on the radio – KPFK – where you will hear contemporary writing read. So, tonight, reading a complete short story in one sitting, Victoria Patterson. Patterson is author of a remarkable breakthrough collection called Drift and the politically searing and sociologically tragic-comic novel This Vacant Paradise, and an upcoming book, The Peerless Four out in fall 2013. Tonight she reads her short story “Dogs” for you. For more on Victoria Patterson: http://victoriapatterson.com/books.html. Thanks for listening on the radio, or online. Or as a free download from the station’s archives. See you at the LA Times Festival of Books April 20 & 21. Find me at the KPFK tent or the Santa Monica Review booth.
