sorry house book launch and reading
Literally tens of people will be attending the crème de le crème of the Sorry House world. Of course the only ones who will be sorry will be those who stay in their houses during this pivotal moment. Sorry House is launching out of the internet and into real life. Preparing for this sort of thing is highly important. Those fortunate enough to make it will be treated to a reading unlike any other reading. All other readings lacked true swag. Were other readings just the appetizer for this reading, a true rich savory reading of unbelievable proportions? Well yes of course they were.
Victor ‘Kool A.D.’ Vazquez of Das Racist fame and of generally all-around swell guy fame shall read in his inaugural address to Sorry House. Many wonder how a Tao Lin namedropping rapper will fit into this reading. Of course there is no wonder. Victor Vazquez will leave the crowd speechless.
Giancarlo Ditrapano is probably one of the funniest readers to ever grace any stage. Currently Giancarlo is busy trying to get Marie Calloway’s debut novel published by basically anyone with guts in America. Unfortunately that’s not very many people.
Spencer Madsen is best known for his award-winning, hard-hitting Twitter persona. No one rocks out with their proverbial cocks out on Twitter like Spencer Madsen. ‘A Million Bears’ is Spencer Madsen’s first book of poetry and it comes as a PDF with Mira Gonzalez’s debut book.
Melissa Broder is cool. Honestly Beach Sloth doesn’t know much about Melissa besides occasionally reading a piece by Melissa and thinking ‘Damn that’s good. I should probably read more by her.’ Yet Beach Sloth never does that. Beach Sloth is sorry.
Willis Plummer is the wearer of the mustache. Earlier Willis had control over his mustache. Now sadly Willis’s mustache controls him. Recently covered by Vice Magazine by Alt Lit writer Josh Baines, Willis Plummer is going to important places, like Muumuu House. Everybody loves Willis Plummer. Those who don’t love Willis Plummer generally get executed. Fuck the haters.
Marshall Mallicoat is one of the most mysterious members of the greater Tri-State area Alt Lit scene. With a 1,000 page plus book out for free and some of his poetry adorning the hallowed halls of Pop Serial, Marshall Mallicoat really knows his way around an Excel spreadsheet. Marshall Mallicoat is the Excel Spreadsheet God of Alt Lit.
Mira Gonzalez is the main attraction of this delightful event. ‘I will never be beautiful enough to make us beautiful together’ has been receiving a great deal of attention from highly regarded writers such as Blake Butler and Tao Lin. Most recently Mira Gonzalez received coverage from the relevant Alt Lit blog ‘Beach Sloth’.
This is the cosmic alignment of readers. Never again will such quality be in the same room ever again. Anyone in the greater Tri-State Metropolitan area should attend post-haste. Sorry House will only be sorry if nobody shows. If everyone shows than there is the possibility of rebranding Sorry House into a ‘Thank You’ House.
