A new book that I'm excited about:
academic texts of the past decade. I had a chance to hear Marcus present a section from In Praise of Copying about a year ago at the UofT and it taught me all I know about Louis Vuitton handbags (as well as being an impressive display of erudition and the ability to draw parallels between subjects as diverse as Eastern philosophy, Heidegger, and Takashi Murakami).
He'll be launching the new book in Toronto this coming Tuesday in conjunction with a performance by the legendary John Giorno:
This Is Not A Reading Series presents:
Marcus Boon and John Giorno in a creative performance and dialogue
at The Annex Live, 296 Brunswick Avenue, Toronto. $5 cover charge.
