readings at the Village Voice, Paris

Monday, May 22nd 2006 at 7 pm

Samuel Beckett's British publisher John Calder celebrates the centenary of Samuel Beckett's birthday. He will recall
Samuel Beckett:
the man, his life and his work.

'This is not a lecture, nor a theatrical performance, but a combination of the two, conceived principally as an entertainment, partially as an educational evening to give those who are curious about the man and the artist, who is so much discussed and admired, an accurate picture of what he is about, and above all, to dispell the misunderstandings
and misconceptions that so many
have attached to his work..'.

Thursday June 1st at 7pm
On the occasion of the publication in France of
IMELDA

(Quidam Editeur 2006 )

the Scottish author
JOHN HERDMAN
will talk and read from his immensely rich and provocative novel.
' A dark, cautionary tale, utterly compellling and
charged with Herdman's unwavering sense of irony and his sharp satirical bite.... A writer very clearly
on top of his craft, with wit, subtlety, and great panache.'
Scotsman


John Herdman has published several novels and collections of short stories, amonf them: Ghost Writing and The Sinister Cabaret. His non-fiction includes: Voice
Without Restraint: Bob Dylan's Lyrics and their Background.
The Double in Nineteenth-century Fiction. :

He will be introduced by his French translator
Maica Sanconie



" A major contribution to modern Scottish fiction..."
"A disturbing, grotesquely comic and compelling tale, irresistible in its intensity. Imelda is an engaging, and arresting psychological study, and it shows Herdman at his very best." Brian McCabe

An evening with

BARRY LOPEZ
who will read from
RESISTANCE
( Vintage US 2005)

'Barry Lopez is a rarity- a writer of unembarrassed seriousness. Resistance, his sequence of depositions from nine troubled travelers, is a work of luminous gravity. It sets the oldest wisdoms of myth and landscape against the newest conventions of the West in narratives which are daring, sensuous, beautiful and important.'.
Jim Crace, author of Being Dead

When did this forum become an advertising billboard?

take a pill, Anthony, this is no different telling posters where to go in Paris whether it's a movie or a restaurant.

If you're going to list one set of events at one venue in Paris, then fairness demands that you do the same for all other events and venues in Paris as well … and there isn't enough room here to cover everything that is going on in Paris. This isn't Pariscope.

Additionally, readings at the Village Voice are way, way down near the bottom of the list as far as general interest is concerned.

Thank you cigale

Anthony, every once in a while , someone will post something from a guide book, newspaper, something that they received in email and they share it.
I think you are the First person who has not Thanked the poster and has been critical instead.
Sometimes ( I know this as a fact, from personal experience) you need to just bite your tongue and don't say anything.
