Triple Canopy and Dalkey Archive Press present an afternoon of failure to celebrate the release of The Review of Contemporary Fiction‘s “Failure” issue, guest-edited by Joshua Cohen. The program will include attempted readings from the issue by Eileen Myles, Helen DeWitt, Sam Frank, Travis Jeppesen and Keith Gessen; a botched tribute to the classics of American literature by John Collins and Scott Shepherd of the theater group Elevator Repair Service; mangled covers of pop songs by US Girls; and an effort to resurrect William Gaddis.
