The Return of Rant/Rhapsody

For those of you in the New York area, we wanted to let you know that our good friends over at the The Brooklyn Rail are presenting “Rant/Rhapsody”: an evening of elegies, exaltations and screeds from some of the Rail’s best, which, for this particular reading, overlaps quite nicely with Killing the Buddha’s best as well.

  • Andrew Boyd, author of Daily Afflictions and Life’s Little Deconstruction Book (KtB)
  • Writer and photographer Sabine Heinlein (The Idler, City Limits, Die Zeit)
  • Matty Vaz, chief Coney Island correspondent for the Rail

Hosted by Rail contributor, TV writer, and Marketplace radio essayist, Doug Cordell.
