Please Join us Thursday, October 24th at 7:00 pm as we welcome Will Viharo as he reads from his cult classic Love Stories Are Too Violent For Me. Back in print after two decades, this modern, ironic detective story features iconic private eye Vic Valentine, who is hired by a hard-drinking professional baseball player to find a vanished lover. From there, a troubling journey begins, as the hunt leads Valentine down a twisting trail of decadence and danger that eventually takes him to the most unexpected place—the private eye's own past. This is pulp in the classic sense: the story of a lonesome outsider wrestling with existence and sucked into a whirlpool of lust, passion, and desperation, all served hot, fast, and straight out of the emotionally gory grindhouse called life. Currently in development as a film to star and be directed by Christian Slater.
