Steve Erickson

When: Thu., Nov. 8, 7 p.m. 2007

A lake floods Los Angeles in Steve Erickson's novel RubiconBeach. A boy named Kierkegaard Blumenthal is stolen by owls in Our Ecstatic Days. Characters in several of Erickson's ambitiously experimental novels suffer for their stuttering -- as he did, in childhood. Stoking the surreal and mining the magical, Erickson spins strange politico-literary visions, and his fans would follow him anywhere. Four of his novels have been New York Times Notable Books of the Year. In his latest, Zeroville, an ex-seminarian film fan braves the Hollywood underworld in 1969. At Black Oak Books (1491 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) on Nov. 8, Erickson talks with KPFA's "Cover to Cover" show host Richard Wolinsky. 7 p.m. BlackOakBooks.com
