Tuesday, July 2nd @ 6:30 pm - Tim Kirk, Rob Zabrecky, & Tim Davis discuss and sign "The Feral Boy who lives in Griffith Park"
DIESEL, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Tim Kirk, Rob Zabrecky, and Time Davis to the store to discuss and sign The Feral Boy who lives in Griffith Park on Tuesday, July 2nd at 6:30 pm. Please note that this event will take place in the lower outdoor courtyard adjacent to our store.
Tim Kirk writes and edits a collection of stories set in a world where The Feral Boy who lives in Griffith Park exists. The largest urban park in the nation, dwarfing New York's Central Park by five to one, is the fertile ground where new myths and legends grow. A murderous Western Swing guitarist, a golf caddie turned tabloid writer, a pair of tweakers at their first parent support group, a suicidal father taking his last hike, and other stories span decades of life in Los Angeles.
Jane Wiedlin from The Go-Gos said, "I loved reading this weird and wonderful anthology. The stories are so beautifully written; I felt a visceral reaction to so much of the imagery." Mike Davis, the author of City of Quartz, said, "The Wild Boy is real and you will relish these Borges-like gems of story-telling."
This anthology, featuring stories by David Carpenter, Patrick Cooper, Rob Zabrecky, Steve Newman, Tim Davis, and Josh Lawson, will have you believing in The Feral Boy who lives in Griffith Park.
Tim Kirk is a writer and filmmaker living two miles from Griffith Park. He is the author of the multi-generational Western novel Burnt. His films include Sex Madness Revealed, Director's Commentary: Terror of Frankenstein and Bewitched. He has produced Room 237, The Nightmare, And With Him Came The West, episodes of Tom Explores Los Angeles and The El Duce Tapes.
Rob Zabrecky was once dubbed “one of LA’s most interesting natives” by the LA Weekly. He is a musician (Possum Dixon), a magician who performs regularly at the Magic Castle and around the world, an actor appearing in Ghost Story and Strange Angel among other film and television, and the author of the memoir Strange Cures.
Tim Davis is first, foremost, and forever a father. Writing in a wide range of media (from radio, TV, and film, to BSU video games, birthday songs and all manner of bloggery) helped him initially fill the time before his kids arrived, and has continued to provide a consistently arduous, occasionally gainful means of occupying his non-parental hours.
Copies of The Feral Boy who lives in Griffith Park will be available for purchase at the event.
