The reading/signing will begin at 7 PM at the Barnes & Noble Union Square. May 5 also marks the publication date of the Simon and Schuster novel. "Perforated Heart," according to press notes, is a "meditative and lacerating portrait of a writer, from callow young man to aging literary lion. Drawing on his own experiences and observations in the vortex of New York's downtown underground arts scene in the 70s and 80s, Bogosian crafts a double narrative that slyly moves back and forth between now and then, underscoring the psychological cost of ambition and fame."
Barnes & Noble Union Square is located in Manhattan at 33 East 17th Street. For additional information call (212) 253-0810.
