Reading in “Hot Portland” (aka Austin, TX)

Last night I had the privilege to read with Zoë Miller at the excellent indie bookstore Malvern Books in Austin, TX, a town that I always loved when I lived here in Texas and that I like to refer to now as “Hot Portland.” (I call Portland “Wet Austin.”)

It was a great time, with lots of old friends and new friends come out to hear us read! And Malvern Books was an amazing host (they even filmed the readings!).

  1. I enjoyed the video very much. What struck me was the accessibility of the text. there was nothing about it that stopped me, as a listener, dropping right into the scene, nothing that distracted me from the narrative. But at the same time it was visual and vivid, and had a dramatic quality, by which I mean it felt like it was being played out in exact real-time, in front of my mind’s eye. I am greatly looking forward to getting my hands on a copy.

    Being a jealous author I don’t say this to many other writers, but I think you might have a modern classic on your hands.
