Sula and I in Memphis, Thursday 11/29

Sula and I are on our way to Memphis, where we'll be appearing on Live@9 in the morning and then signing books at Davis-Kidd at 6pm. In between we'll be napping and hopefully stopping by Stax Records, since I think everyone, including my dogs, should go there.

So if you are in Memphis, please come by and see us!

Roxy and PeeWee from "Dogs I Have Met"


Roxy and PeeWee, originally uploaded by kfoz.

When I visited my sister in Michigan last year, I met a pit bull named Rose at the Pinckney library. She was with her owner, Lola, who told me the story of her previous pit bull, a three legged marvel named Roxy. When Lola brought home PeeWee from a local farm, the two became lifelong friends--although things got a little awkward when PeeWee reached 700 pounds and still wanted to play like a puppy. Their story is in the chapter titled "The Odd Couples" in "Dogs I Have Met: And the People They Found."

NOLAFugees: Life in the Wake

In today's Times Picayune, Susan Larson has a huge review of "Life in the Wake", the NOLAFugees anthology that features a piece of fiction from me. She also offers a collection of excerpts from the book and other post-K fiction: "You Can't Make Up This Stuff".

Monday night, several of us will be reading from the book at Beth's Books, adjacent to Sound Cafe, 2700 Chartres Street. The fun starts at 6pm--Monday November 26th.
