An Incomplete History of the Art of Funerary Violin
Rohan Kriwaczek's lavish history of the oppressed and fading Guild of Funerary Violinists was received with acclaim when it was purchased by Overlook Press. His accomplishment has been undiminished by the subsequent discovery that the Guild, the history, and the art of funerary violin itself seem to be entirely his own invention. There is, however, at least one funerary violinist: Rohan Kriwaczek himself. Stop by after 5:00pm to hear Rohan demonstrate his art with an eerie Halloween concert of funerary violin music, punctuated with a reading at 6:00pm from his beautifully written book and a chance for discussion with the author. Signing to follow.
