New Short Fiction Series: Suzanne Rivecca

Stories from Suzanne Rivecca’s stunning debut collection Death Is Not An Option will be performed at this Sunday’s New Short Fiction Series show–7pm (doors at 6:30) at the LA Municipal Art Gallery in Barnsdall Park, 4800 Hollywood Blvd; tickets $10 in advance, $15 at the door.  The event will also be a book launch, and is the only scheduled local appearance by the author.

This is one of the most striking story collections to appear in a while, and is being lauded by the likes of Lorrie Moore and Jim Shepard and Charles Baxter.  Local writer and blogger Callie Miller nails it in this brief review:  the book is kick-ass, and raises the bar for anyone serious about literature as a reader and/or writer.

And here is my own interview with the author, which confirms her as a major new talent and fictive mind to be reckoned with. (Also, my subsequent review of Death Is Not an Option at the terrific website The Short Review.)
