Walking the Volcano by Jon Lispky
April 14 - May 1, 2011
Written by Jon Lipsky, the acclaimed author of Dreaming with an AIDS Patient and Living in Exile, these short, satisfying vignettes vary from a meeting in an airplane bathroom over the Pacific to a tryst in a seedy room in Saigon during the Tet Offensive. Lipsky’s characters are complex, compelling, and in a search of the Truth, and there’s no better writer of dramatic confrontation. If you lived through (or read about) the ‘60s, don’t be surprised when you recognize these people or see yourself in them. We’ve all walked the volcano.
