TamTam Books News

Wednesday, January 21, 2004:

For those in the Los Angeles area I will be doing a reading of Boris Vian's 'I Spit on Your Graves' and 'Foam of the Daze' (L'Ecume des jours). Both are from my press. The reading will take place in a real speakeasy in Los Feliz.

There will be a powerful cocktail based on the lovely Chloe served at this event and also as an extra treat (in the background) there will be recorded music by Vian or Vian associated artists. Close your eyes and you will be thrown into the legendary Jazz clubs of Saint-Germain-des-Pres!

Also TamTam Books designer and man about the world Tom Recchion did the visuals & design for this month's bookmark for the Speakeasy. This bookmark will lead you to the seductive charms of Chloe! It's brilliant if I may so - and I can because my name is Tosh!

Down below is the hardcore (and I mean that) information - including links, etc.

Ooh la la bebe! This Sunday, January 25 at 8:00 pm, the Speakeasy returns with a certain, I don't know what, as we welcome TOSH BERMAN of Tam Tam Books in celebration of their freshly translated, newly released French literary classic, FOAM OF THE DAZE (L'Ecume des Jours) by Boris Vian (http://www.tamtambooks.com/)
WeĆ­ll be sipping secretly and speaking easily in a jazzy oh-so-faux Parisian style. Our first bookmark of 2004 has been designed by Los Angeles-based composer and graphic designer TOM RECCHION.
Take a peek at what awaits you on Sunday by going to:
