Loyal Reluctant readers know that at some time in the past, I made a deal with a blues guitarist at a crossroads. The guitarist, who claimed that he was rather “beezled” (I’m still not sure what this verb means; perhaps it’s French), told me that I would learn the recipe for a particularly tasty potato salad under one condition: that I must mention everything that Jonathan Ames is up to.
I’m still waiting for the recipe, but I’m a man of my word. So it behooves me to point out that Mr. Ames will be part of The Moth storytelling series, along with several other people. The details are as follows:
Thursday, October 12, 8:00 PM
At UCLA Live/Royce Hall
Sunday, October 15th, 7:30 PM ($12)
Thursday, October 19th, 8:00 PM ($21)
Great American Music Hall
Thursday, October 22nd, 7:30 pm ($20)
Newman Center for the Performing Arts
I am unsure why San Francisco is the most expensive city on the list and why the literary community of Seattle gets a much cheaper ticket price, but I am sure there are significant scientific reasons behind all of this that only the man at the crossroads will know.
I’m still waiting for the potato salad recipe.
