Back to All Events

Jerry Stahl and Alice Carbone at Spoken Interludes, Amalfi Restaurant, Los Angeles

Old Guy Dad recounts the adventures of a man who, in the proverbial autumn of his years, or at least the pre pre-autumn, discovers his girlfriend is pregnant. And having a baby. Whereupon hijinks, cosmic and mundane, ensues. A collection of celebrated columns on The Rumpus with new material and never-before-told tales, Old Guy Dad is Jerry Stahl at his finest and most domestic.

In 1994, one month after the Northridge earthquake and two years after the riots, K moves to Los Angeles to escape her demons. That's the thing about demons though, they tend to follow. At once honest and heartbreaking, The Sex Girl digs deep into the female psyche, dealing with addiction, sex, love, and friendship. K's story, and the unique way in which it's told adds a new literary voice to the mix. Alice Carbone's fresh take on the drug addiction novel, earns a place amongst the tortured junkies. With a sense of impending tragedy, Carbone weaves K's life together through found diaries and recollections, and in doing so she unpacks the density of a single person's story.
