Georgina Spelvin on Readings, Reviews & Fires in LA

Georgina Spelvin Writes-

Vacation’s Over
Back to work. Reading coming up. Thursday, September 7th – YIKES – that’s this week!!!

A READING at BOOK SOUP.

No no no – not yet another reading of my memoir, The Devil Made Me Do It – though I will be doing more of that in San Francisco September 16th at Good Old Good Vibes Erotic Emporium. The one on Polk Street. That’s from 5 to 7pm – preceding a screening of The Devil in Miss Jones at the Lumiere Theater. All part of the Good Vibrations FOURTH ANNUAL Independent Erotic Film Festival.

No. This is a new book, Hos, Hookers, Call Girls, and Rent Boys.
I contributed a big fat six page essay.

You may have seen the Great Review it got in (be still my heart) the New York Freakin Times?!
Front page of the book section. I’m still breathing hard.
Whoops – just tried that and it seems old snooty NYT makes you join to read their stuff.

David Sterry (co-collector of these stories) just sent me these links to other reviews, and you don’t have to join anything to read ’em. Some of them even mention me.

It’s hot, the air smells like an old ashtray, and we’re watching the fires on TV as they’re being fought by our heroes. Who needs adventure movies when you live in LA?

UPDATE-Two Firefighters Die
The stark headline slammed down on my front porch two minutes ago. How could I possibly have compared this real life horror surrounding us to a movie?
