Suzanne Rivecca is in town this week to read from her debut short story collection, Death is Not an Option. Each story in the collection brings us into a character's life at a moment of change. Will they overcome their past, will they break free from other's perceptions of them, will they stand on their own? If so, what does that look like and what does that mean? These are the questions Rivecca explores with startling honesty, humor and straight-up storytelling. Her awkward, self-conscious characters earnestly trying to find their way forward make for a must-read collection. Rivecca will be reading at The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery Barnsdall Art Park Sunday night at 7pm as part of The New Short Fiction Series.
