Black Clock, the literary magazine published by CalArts’ Creative Writing Program, launched its 17th issue at BookCourt in Brooklyn on Nov. 14. The event featured writers and novelists Henry Bean, Shelley Jackson, Jay Neugeboren, Katie Ryder, Dana Spiotta and Lynne Tillman, each of whom read from their respective works.
The new issue of the magazine features work by Bean, Neugeboren, Ryder, Spiotta, novelist Aimee Bender and poet Arielle Greenberg, among others. From the website:
Charting the crossroads of obsession and the back alleys of eroticism, Black Clock 17 is a topography of forbidden passions. The afterglow of an affair leaves a woman to satisfy a more illicit yearning in Dana Spiotta’s Watch, a group of teen orgiasts converge in Tom McCarthy’s Pyramid Party to recreate the sexual humiliations of Abu Ghraib, and in Aimee Bender’s Vigilante, a young female police captain intrudes on the psychodramas of strangers to enforce the laws of the heart…
Black Clock 17 can be purchased for $17 for the print edition, and $3 for a PDF version at the Black Clock website.
