overview

Grab your legwarmers, shoulder pads and hairspray, and "Walk like an Egyptian" as we return to that era that brought us a new generation of short story writers and novelists. Tama Janowitz (Slaves of New York) and Michael Musto (The Village Voice) introduce readings by Bobby Cannavale, Michael Cerveris, Anna Chlumsky, Mary Stuart Masterson, Stephen Spinella, and others. Stories from the decade by Donald Barthelme, Ann Beattie, Raymond Carver, Tama Janowitz, and a poem by Mark Doty, and Tama Janowitz. Hosted by Matthew Love (Time Out New York).

*Sadly, Ellen Barkin has had to pull out of this performance.
