*5 Nov 7pm: The prolific, award-winning Michael Moorcock, author of close to one hundred novels, will be reading from his latest book The Metatemporal Detective. Moorcock figured as the precocious editor of Tarzan Adventures and the Sexton Blake mystery novels in the 1950s, in the 60s was mentioned for Behold The Man, about a time traveller seeking Jesus, and as prolific creator of prototypical fantasy hero Elric of Melnibone, though another account would cite novels like The Final Programme, and their sexually ambiguous messiah figure Jerry Cornelius. In ‘64, Moorcock took over New Worlds, Britain’s only remaining science fiction magazine, & gleefully inoculated it with the virus of the counterculture: J.G. Ballard, Norman Spinrad & Thomas Disch surfed to fame on the resulting New Wave. Fronting his own band Deep Fix, Moorcock also performed and wrote for rock groups Hawkwind and Blue Oyster Cult, and survived Hollywood exile as a screenwriter, only to re-emerge in the 1980s with Whitbread-shortlisted Mother London, “a vast, sprawling, eccentric… masterful comic novel [which] seems to encapsulate the history of postwar Britain in its dizzy decline.” (Publishers Weekly), and the Colonel Pyat books. AT: Shakespeare & CO, 37 rue de la Bucherie, 75005 Paris. M°: St Michel. http://www.shakespeareco.org/

He is currently working in Paris as a journalist and literary translator and at work on his second novel. 'Fever is a modern punchy novel that takes the readers on a turbulent ride as they rediscover the feelings, philosophies and experiences of youth.' AT: Village Voice, 6 rue Princesse, 75006. M° Mabillion/St Germain de Près. http://www.villagevoicebookshop.com/

7 Nov See MINUSCULE HEY !: FR Paris – Un gars, une fille et un radiateur. Drôle d'équation pour un thriller psychologique aux ressorts dramatiques. Attention compliment : Les minuscule hey sont les Monochrome Set de 2007 et nous réservent assurément quelques bonnes surprises en 2008... Curieux, exquis, burlesque et bordelais, notre trio (!) aime les films en noir et blanc et les lapins aux oreilles marrons. Musiciens inventifs qui, avec peu de moyens, écrivent des pépites pop sur leur oncle Jim ou sur leur pote slave joueur de tennis, les "minus" sortent un premier single 6 titres, qui ne décolle pas de notre platine. On attend la suite avec impatience. (Abus Dangereux) AT : OPA (+ Cornflakes Heroes) in PARIS, m° Bastille, 75012. For more info and full address, see: http://www.minusculehey.com/ or www.myspace.com/minusculehey

*8th Nov at 7 pm: JEAN LAMORE discusses and reads from “AKA : Book of Fever” Books that break ground and survive fleeting trends- books that re-define the limits of what language can do- always involve a challenging adventure, a pilgrimage, a soulful journey. In Jean Lamore's AKA, the adventure is a mental one, the pilgrimage moves through a world in which psychic disorder creates aesthetic principles, insanity is brought out of exile and becomes a constructive force, the journey takes place in what the author calls 'the remote present', and a landscape of destroyed and dismembered icons from the world we know becomes the protagonist... AKA risks what all great works are inflicted with - being widely misunderstood and being rudely ahead of its time ' David Applefield ( Frank Magazine) AT: Village Voice, 6 rue Princesse, 75006. M° Mabillion/St Germain de Près. http://www.villagevoicebookshop.com/

*23 Nov : 20H00. Join us at the Abbey Bookshop to mark the French edition launch of “Lee Miller, Une Vie / A Life” by Caroline Burke: the author and translator of the French edition will speak. Lee Miller’s life embodied all the contradictions and complications of the twentieth century: a model and photographer, muse and reporter, sexual adventurer and domestic goddess, she was also America’s first female war correspondent! Carolyn Burke, a biographer, art critic and translator, met and befriended Lee Miller, while conducting research for her book, Becoming Modern: The Life of Myrna Loy. She reveals how the muse who inspired Man Ray, Cocteau, and Picasso could be the same person who unflinchingly photographed the horrors of Buchenwald and Dachau. Burke captures all the verve and energy of Miller’s multifaceted life:Lee Miller illuminates an astonishing woman’s journey from art object to artist.

In Deed, he has built a substantial architecture whose ‘perilous upkeep’ is dazzling. This is a truly wondrous book.”—Peter Gizzi “With the sweeping vision of Whitman, the noun-play of Gertrude Stein, and the slant political commentary of the New York School, Smith chisels out a place of his own with a tremendous integrity of vision.” —Lisa Jarnot. Rod Smith is the author of nine other books of poems, including Music or Honesty, Poèmes de l’Araignées, and In Memory of My Theories. He edits the journal Aerial, publishes Edge Books, and manages the independent Bridge Street Books in Washington, D.C. Check out his epc site for interviews, older sample poems, etc.
