Some of These Days live performance

None
2 p.m., Sunday November 03

To celebrate a publishing event, Norton/Liveright’s The Complete Short Stories of James Purdy, with an introduction by filmmaker John Waters, Ryan Cox and Michael Snyder will perform live music accompanying a recording of Purdy reading his subversive story “Some of These Days.”  James Purdy (1914-2009), a novelist, playwright, and poet, was one of America’s greatest but most under-read authors.  He was acclaimed by literary luminaries from Langston Hughes to Tennessee Williams to Jonathan Franzen.  A religious allegory of sorts, Some of These Days was the last thing that Tennessee Williams ever read: Purdy’s manuscript was found by his deathbed.
