Burke's Book Store says
Store on Thursday, April 30th, from 5:30 to 7 PM to read from and sign copies of his new novel, Memphis Movie (Soft Skull Press, $15.95 paperback). He will also be signing his poetry collection, The Sky Needs More Work ($11.99 paperback) and his short story collection, As a Child ($18 paperback). Reading will begin at 6 pm.

Memphis Movie: Eric Warberg went to Hollywood to make it big. For many years, he was successful, until directing a few box office bombs made him virtually unemployable. When an opportunity presents itself for a return to his hometown of Memphis, to direct a small, independent film, it is a return to his roots in more ways than one. Despite the fact that he's greeted like a star, his homecoming is bittersweet.

"I have long suspected, because of my hubris, that I would discover the lost continent of Atlantis. Little did I know that it would turn out to be a movie. And what an amazing one, very unique and persuasive and strange and sometimes quite funny, written and directed by this original, clever, funny writer – who is now also a star."
--Ann Beattie, author of Chilly Scenes of Winter and The New Yorker Stories.

“This dark, funny, mysterious, sexy novel is so spot-on in its recreations of film-land zeitgeist as to be spooky… Corey Mesler is an undiscovered treasure. This book screams to be a movie. The characters are sharp, smart, and funny. I was sorry when I finished it. So I started it over again.”
--Peter Coyote, star of E. T. and Northfork, and author of The Rainman’s Third Cure.

Corey Mesler owns Burke’s Book Store and is a novelist, poet and book reviewer.
