Allison Amend Reading

On Friday, January 9th, an enormous crowd braved the cold to come hear Allison Amend read from her story collection, Things That Pass for Love. Allison knows how to please an audience: her reading, an excerpt from the story called “The People You Know Best ” featured dogs, sex, and cyber erotica. And it was funny. Listen here if you missed it. We are also happy to report that Allison just sold the manuscript for her first novel, Stations West, inspired by the story of the same name that was published as One Story Issue #13. We look forward to welcoming her back to the One Story reading series when the book comes out.Marco Guglielmino and Allison AmendThings That Pass for LoveThe crowd at Pianos, warmed by literature

One thought on “Allison Amend Reading

  1. Nice event and venue. But sorry, I was completely underwhelmed by the writing. The lively presentation adds a lot, but on the page, the work
    is flat and lacks deep thoughts and self-inquiry. Lots of PR hustle and not a lot to back it up. Did anyone else into serious literature think this.
