In One Week: Verse Chapter Verse with Colson Whitehead and the Curious Mystery at Chop Suey
Just one week 'til the fall edition of Verse Chapter Verse, The Stranger
's music-and-reading series. I'll be interviewing the great Colson Whitehead about his fabulous new zombie novel Zone One
, he'll be reading from the book, signing body parts, and answering your questions. (The great
reviews of Zone One are
* in.) and Your New Favorite Local Band, the Curious Mystery, will play a set before and after.
It's going to be a lot of fun. Get your tickets—just $5—right here.
* Get a load of this line, from Ron Charles at the Washington Post: "It’s a remarkable episode, drenched in the matinee carnage of classic horror but elevated by the power of Whitehead’s prose to the level of those other ash-covered nightmares imagined by T.S. Eliot, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Cormac McCarthy."
