Our audio series "The Authors Read. We Listen." was iriginally hatched in a NYC club during BEA back in 2012. It's a fun little series, where authors record themselves reading an excerpt from their own novels, in their own voices, the way their stories were meant to be heard.
In light of all the social distancing and recommended reduction to group events, we're happy to help support those who have recently published, or will soon be publishing, a book. It's hard enough to get your books out there, and now with the cancelation of book events and readings making it even harder, I want to do my part to help you spread the word!
Today, Ben Arzate is hanging with us here at the blog, reading an excerpt from his latest book Dr. Sodom and Mrs. Gomorrah. Ben Arzate lives in Des Moines, IA. He is the author of the novels The Story of the Y (Cabal Books) and Elaine (Atlatl Press), the short story collection The Complete Idiot's Guide to Saying Goodbye (NihilismRevised), and the poetry collections the sky is black and blue like a battered child and dr. sodom and mrs. gomorrah (feel bad all the time). He is a regular contributor to Cultured Vultures. Find him online at http://dripdropdripdropdripdrop.blogspot.com/
