12/04/09 READING @ BookCourt, Brooklyn

I'm proud to announce that me and my irreplaceable acoustic Taylor will be part of the "prizes, surprises, absurdities guaranteed" of LETHEM vs. CHRONIC CITY, the "Gran Finale" of the marathon reading organized by Jonathan Lethem to promote his beautiful new book.

I hope you'll join us at the warm BookCourt bookstore, from 7PM to the last page of the book.

See you there!!

Singer/songwriter born in Caserta (south of Italy)... he’s been living (and playing, and writing) in Rome for more than 10 years now… but New York City is always in his life… his young artistic career has often connected to that of American folksinger Suzanne Vega… after being many years the Italian translator of her poems and songs, he recently opened her Italian show in Milan… Suzanne writes about him in her blog: “I really like his songwriting.
