That’s right folks! The one, the only Mark Z. Danielewski is coming to the Lou and the talk is free! The event that brings him here is the re-releasing of his novella “The Fifty Year Sword” Until this year there’s only been 2000 copies in circulation making it a rather rare and, given MZD’s devoted following, an extremely hard book to find.  Here’s the synopsis from Left Bank’s website:

“a local seamstress named Chintana finds herself responsible for five orphans who are not only captivated by a storyteller’s tale of vengeance but by the long black box he sets before them.”

As expected MZD doesn’t disappoint with his unique structure and story telling format. Five colours are used to denote different speakers and the copy being sold at the talk, 25$ gets you a hand sewn and his signature, has interior art which may be unique to this copy (unconfirmed).


Lecture: free

Book and signing: 25$

Date: 10/24/2012 Wednesday

    I normally don’t cross blog streams, but this event is too important not to spread around.
