Rebecca Brown reads from her new collection of essays

American Romances

published by City Lights Books

This collection of mordant, poignant and playful essays shows Rebecca Brown at the height of her imaginative and intuitive powers. A wry and incisive social and literary critique is couched in a gonzo mix of pop culture, autobiography, fiction, literary history, misremembered movie plots and fantasy that plays with the notion of what it is to be "American."

Rebecca Brown, Kevin Killian, Dodie Bellamy, and Robert Gluck celebrate the release of

Life As We Show It: Writing On Film

edited by Brian Pera and Masha Tupitsyn

Introduction by Masha Tupitsyn

published by City Lights Books

Life As We Show It is a dynamic cross-genre collection that uses short stories, essays, and poetry to explore the cinematic experience. In these innovative writings, the movie-viewer relationship is positioned as protagonist, theme and plot, and most importantly, as a new genre in its own right.
