Two fiction writers, Laurie Taylor and Richard Michael Levine, share the stage at Bird & Beckett this Sunday afternoon.
On remote Spanish island near the African coast, a Mexican AmericanÂ entomologist, Epiphany Jerome, is looking for a rare beetle. Instead she findsÂ a body on an empty beach with a knife sticking out from its back. Â Laurie Taylor’s Said the Fly is aÂ forensic murder mystery that Kirkus Review called â€œdazzlingâ€Â and â€œsmartly writtenâ€ in their *starred* review. It was selected as one of theirÂ May â€œKirkus Indie Books of the Month.â€ Writer and biologist Laurie TaylorÂ moved to Glen Park in 2014, after more than a decade of living in EuropeÂ and the Middle East.
Richard Michael Levine‘s short story collection, The Man Who Gave Away His Organs: Tales of Love and Obsession at Midlife, was published by Capra Press in 2015. He was a magazine writer and editor for many years, publishing feature articles and columns in Harperâ€™s, Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, Playboy, and many others. He has taught at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism and is the author of a bestselling non-fiction book, Bad Blood: A Family Murder in Marin County, published by Random House and New American Library. His poems, which have appeared widely in literary magazines, have been collected in Catch and Other Poems.
