I'll be reading something (I haven't decided what yet) at LitQuake
on Sunday at the Koret Auditorium in the San Francisco Library, 1:00 p.m. I'm in the "Fiction that Resonates: A Sense of Character" section -- but the thing is, when you write in first-person, everyone assumes you're writing autobiographically, which is why I dislike reading from my book.
