Because I Do Not Think You Are STUPID
Despite all the evidence to the contrary, I still believe that people are NOT stupid.
If I were to start my novel Who Town today (instead of seven years ago) my characters would surely need to wage battle with reality TV junkies, the kind of people who follow those rich girls with the giant asses. Perhaps they’d need to become supernatural– no wonder the glut of vampires –given the gossip surveillance culture in which we live.
Roxy, Who Town’s gatekeeper of ‘it girls,’ could make voodoo dolls of people on ‘the scene’ who’ve pissed her off. Lola would post photos of guys and girls with whom she’s refused videotaped sex on the internet, start her own XXX Black List. Rick could film Shakespeare’s sonnets for YouTube as rock anthems with a chorus of models he’s banged dancing behind him Lady Gaga style. And Sarah would tweet the hell of out of every detail.
HELL, maybe I’ll just save that for the sequel. For now, Lola, Roxy, Rick and Sarah have taken me by the hand into their inner worlds, on the New York downtown scene and into private moments, no digital trail.
I’ll be telling their stories LIVE at the ENCLAVE next Saturday, November 17th.
I’m excited by all the GIRL POWER on the bill. Anne E. Wood, Katie Wudel, and Leopoldine Core will read their work as well.
