Jocko Weyland — Eating Glass Book Signing — Los Angeles, USA — 14 SEP 2016 | 7:30pm
Family Books, 436 N. Fairfax Ave.
Eating Glass might be either seen as a collection of short texts and stories, or, in aggregate, a full novel. Weyland describes adventures and incidents, some of profound import, some seemingly trivial, that can be interpreted as semi-factual, clear-eyed, on-the-ground reports of instants of his life and the world we have made for ourselves. From a childhood in the mountains of northern Colorado to his young years in California, his fledgling and evolving adulthood in New York, with occasional forays into unglamorous European precincts, the urgent and succinct writing reflects a thirst for experience and even excessive excellence.
