Clevenger Reads Dermaphoria

Craig Clevenger, somewhat inadvertent friend of the blog, has done a reading from his novel Dermaphoria. This was for an episode of KQED’s Writers’ Block. I will read it, as I absolutely loved his novel The Contortionist’s Handbook. The only downside I could tell about Dermaphoria is that it maybe is too thematicallly similar to Contortionist’s Handbook. He has a really compelling prose style and a world view that seems to focus on losers, fuckups and the doomed in the act of self-destructing. I can get in to that. I’d rather read it than live it.
