Meet our readers: Malcolm Chang

Malcolm Chang
Malcolm Chang reports: "I currently reside in Jackson Heights, but I have also lived in Johannesburg, Toronto, Chicago, and Los Angeles, amongst others. I was born during the apartheid era and as a third generation Chinese-South African, have been regarded at various times in my life as more Black than White, as well as more White than Black, on that odd spectrum of racial classification that existed in South Africa. I have written essays for Elle Magazine (South Africa), and a chapter of my memoirs appeared in Newtown Literary. You can also check out my blogs at Senile Delinquent and Mal and Di's Excellent Adventure. I am currently working on my memoirs and my first novel."

Meet our readers: Sarah Riccio

Sarah Riccio is a vile, loathsome being who refrains from spontaneous violent rampage by harboring the juvenile fantasy that her words are actually worth listening to from time to time. A squirming pile of malformed flesh since birth, Sarah used to get by on her "looks," enjoying life as a degenerate plaything in Seattle, keeping the company of strange men with Shirley Temple fetishes. After ceremoniously burning her West coast digs to the ground and with a mind sharpened by well-deserved pain, Sarah now bartends at Astoria Bier and Cheese—an escapist cocoon where her beloved regulars, for some perverse personal reasons, find her twisted self mildly amusing. She hopes you enjoy her efforts for Line Break.

Please join Sarah and all our accomplished readers for our special Queens Literary Crawl edition of Line Break, Thursday, April 28, 7:00-10:30 pm at Aged Restaurant in Forest Hills!
