Let's Mess With Your Evening Plans Further

by Ron Hogan

Last week, I told you tonight was overcrowded with literary events, from one-time events featuring Hannah Tinti, Lynn Messina, and Jen Sincero to the latest editions of Cupcake Night and Happy Ending. Now there's more from you to choose from: the New York Underground Film Festival has the local premiere of Asia Argento's film adaptation of JT Leroy's The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things, and Makor hosts a reading and reception for Emmanuel Moses and his translator, Marilyn Hacker, to celebrate the publication of Last News of Mr. Nobody, Moses' first English-language poetry collection.

And here's a related item, a bit of an exclusive: I've been told that the next film made from JT Leroy's fiction will be directed by photographer Nan Goldin. Now that should be interesting (and, to be honest, a lot closer to what I think of as "underground").
