CLARISSA'S MOM reads from SAM PINK's CLONE at the KITTY SNACKS 1 RELEASE PARTY. That's the video above.
Thanks for the reading Michael and Clarissa and Clarissa's lovely mother.
MARC SCHUSTER reviewed THE NATIONAL VIRGINITY PLEDGE over at THE SMALL PRESS REVIEW.
Here's a small excerpt:
"Graham moves the reader through a series of short stories and vignettes that, through a process of accretion, begins to chip away at comfortable notions like individuality and identity. The hit-and-run driver we saw in the first story may or may not be the online gambler who watches from inside a closet while his girlfriend has sex with a stranger. In turn, the gambler also may or may not be worn-down father who loses and later contemplates killing his children’s hamster. Throughout the collection, Graham provides enough details to suggest that, yes, these are all probably different characters, but the unifying theme of desperation that runs through their lives–and the uncannily identical forms that this desperation takes–hints that they may all be one and the same. Of course, this may well be the point of the collection..."
Thank you very much for the excellent review Marc. I think you understand this collection very well. Thanks for the close read. (I'm gonna have to make it a 12 pack)
