Sunday, October 31st, 5 pm, City Lights Bookstore, 261 Columbus Avenue, San Francisco -- John Ross, author of Murdered By Capitalism, in a special Day of the Dead reading and event. Free
Sunday, October 31st, 5 pm
John Ross, author of Murdered By Capitalism, published by Nation Books
in a special Day of the Dead reading and event.
Murdered by Capitalism is a unique fusion of personal memoir and lively history, a kind of Night of the Living Dead of the American left--the sort of Dia de Los Muertes fandango at which Che Guevara, Thelonious Monk, William Burroughs, Billie Holiday and Subcomandante Marcos would feel right at home.
John Ross is a long-time Mexico hand for Noticias Aliadas (Lima), Texas Observer, San Francisco Bay Guardian and the Anderson Valley Advertiser, amongst other screwball publications. He is the author of five volumes of nonfiction (Rebellion From the Roots won an American Book Award) and Tonatiuh's People, a novel of the Mexican cataclysm. Ross also publishes a weekly online screed, "Mexico Barbaro" (now "Blindman's Buff"), a mordant view of political outrages south (and east, west and north) of the border reported from the grass roots. He is also the author of nine chapbooks of poetry, both in and out of print, the most recent of which is Against Amnesia.
