talk & booksigning for "Kissing Dead Girls" & "Fucking Daphne"
Thursday, July 17 at 7:30 pm
Fusing pornography and postfeminist theory, transcript and tell-all - the playful, penetrating poems and stories found in Daphne Gottlieb’s "Kissing Dead Girls" reach off the page in search of what it is to be known, both to the masses and to the “other.” Similarly, the author’s just published "Fucking Daphne: Mostly True Stories and Fictions," an edited collection with work about the author, blurs the lines between reality and fiction and begs the question “who is the real Daphne?”
Daphne Gottlieb is a San Francisco-based performance poet and author. She is the editor of "Homewrecker: An Adultery Reader," as well as the author of the poetry book "Final Girl" (winner of the Audre Lorde Award in Poetry in 2003), "Why Things Burn" (winner of a 2001 Firecracker Alternative Book Award), and "Pelt," and the graphic novel "Jokes and the Unconscious" with artist Diane DiMassa. Her work has been translated into Turkish and Greek, and has inspired theatrical adaptations and DJ-remixes. (Booksmith_in_SF)
