Ed Lin 99 Ways to Die Novel Reading Night with Special Guests - Steph Cha, Chiwan Choi, and Neela Banerjee

Awesome night of readings by the great Ed Lin who makes it a point to always read at GR. The planning begins with jokes galore although he's probably 100% serious under it all, and then the next thing you know the night is here. The smart thing that Ed Lin does is create vibes for each of his events. No two are the same and that's how he handles it. This time he brought special guests who are also authors: Steph Cha, Chiwan Choi, and Neela Banerjee. The tone was healthy and cerebral. You had to sit, listen, and make mental pictures. We hope to see Ed Lin on his next go around.  Ed, Neela, and Chiwan. The Sucklord! Yes...

Q&A With Author Bushra Rehman

And I’m not talking about the beer, though it may help! (Art by Chitra Ganesh) This is one of these short books that you finish in a few hours and it resonates with you for weeks, maybe years and possibly for the rest of your life. Corona reads like a fascinating collection of journals and fiction mashed together in a backpack and bound as is. It’s quite fitting that author Bushra Rehman was a vagabond poet. Bushra and I met not even a year after after 9/11 and it’s a complete coincidence that I’m posting this on an anniversary of 9/11. 9/11 actually figures into the fabric of Corona, as narrator Razia Mirza, a Pakistani woman from Corona, Queens, travels...
