    "A fast, complex, exhilarating roadster ride through history and time.... Kino is an intoxicating Euro-brew, written with enormous skill and dedication." — Frederick Barthelme

    "Jürgen Fauth's deft mashup of genre and historical period is both a full-throttle literary thriller of ideas and a contemplative examination of film and fascism. Kino is a debut of great intellectual  force."– Teddy Wayne

    "A surprising alternative history. Kino brings the golden age of German cinema to light with loving, sometimes gritty, detail and great precision." – Neal Pollack, author of Jewball.

    "A delirious melange of conspiracy, magic, sex, history, bad behavior, and cinema, Kino is a stellar entertainment, and Jürgen Fauth is a writer of rare, sinister imagination." – Owen King, author of Reenactment

    "A light-hearted romp that leads straight into darkness and back through the shadows on the wall."– Ben Loory, author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day

    "Movie nuts arise! A happy and felicitous debut."– Terese Svoboda

Dave Chappelle’s Block Party

Does anybody still remember what Dr. Leary said about “set” and “setting”?

The sound wasn’t turned up […]


Starting out like a romantic comedy about a phobic shut-in and his sexy neighbor, this truly independent production soon turns into a taut, claustrophobic thriller. The debts to Something Wild, Shallow Grave, and Double Indemnity are obvious but never overwhelm the original vision co-directors Kerry Douglas Dye and Jordan Hoffman bring to their material. In […]

Grace Potter, Southpaw

Photo: VickieVictoria To quote some enthused drunkard from late last night, Grace Potter fucking brings it. We saw her twice yesterday, first in front of Grand Central, and later at Brooklyn’s Southpaw. As enjoyable as the afternoon set was, the bottom of a skyscraper canyon isn’t quite right for the 23-year-old Vermont singer–the guy in […]

The Flatbroke Stringband

James Ruchala was in town for a brief stint last week, so we went down to Freddy’s Backroom in Brooklyn for the reunion of his old-time band: Sarah Alden (fiddle), Dave Green (guitar), Nate Landau (bass), and James (banjo.) In this video you can watch them play “Greasy Coat,” “Dink’s Tune,” and “Stay All Night.” […]

Call It Asstoria

“Brooklyn is the worst place on earth for a writer,” says Sara Gran–but what does she know about the cement trucks of Astoria?

Give Me Smut and Nothing But

One reading down, a half dozen to go: At Smut Night, Marcy had the hipsters at Galapagos rolling in the aisles with a few twisted sex scenes from Twins. Sharing the stage with her were Abby Ehman, who told a few embarssing Burning Man stories, and Get Your War On David Rees, who promised X-Rated […]
