The Wire | Zeroville



Zeroville | Radio Waves

Steve Erickson is a legend. Thanks to Eric, and the nice people at Europa Editions, I recently started reading Zeroville. The book is being turned into a film directed by James Franco starring Franco, Seth Rogen, Jacki Weaver, Megan Fox, Will Ferrell, and Danny McBride. So, there's that. Check out a snippet from the book:

“But of course the Western changed along with America’s view of itself, from some sort of heroic country, where everybody’s free, to the spiritually fucked-up defiled place it really is, and now you got jive Italians, if you can feature that, making the only Westerns worth seeing anymore because white America’s just too fucking confused, can’t figure out whether to embrace the myth or the anti-myth, so in a country where folks always figured you can escape your past, now the word is out that this is the country where you can do no such thing, this is the one place where, like the jive that finally becomes impossible to distinguish from the anti-jive, honor becomes impossible to distinguish from betrayal or just, you know, stone cold murder...”

If you dig Steve Erickson, I recommend checking out N.J. Campbell's debut, Found Audio, officially out July 11th. Erickson says, "amid the static of contemporary literature can be heard blips of fiction-future in N.J. Campbell’s defiantly bold Found Audio."
