Flying Books Presents: Halloween, by Lynn "I Love the Dead" Crosbie

When the clock strikes 2 PM this Saturday, Flying Books' very first guest chooser, the incomparable Lynn Crosbie, author of store best seller Where Did You Sleep Last Night, will be haunting 1080 Queen St W.

Lynn will guide you through her ghoulish choices — Maldoror, The Well-Dressed Wound, The Black Dahlia, Dark Places, Flowers in the Attic, So Much Pretty, Party Monster, The Coldest Girl in Coldtown, Helter Skelter, The Bewdley Mayhem Stories, and, of course, Rosemary's Baby. And she will sign Where Did You Sleep Last Night, her creepily obsessive tale of ghosts (starring the ravishing Kurt Cobain) and smack and sex and punk, which makes the dreamiest of the ghoulish fantasists sigh.

Best costume wins a Where Did You Sleep Last Night poster!

Lynn Crosbie is a poet, novelist, cultural critic, newspaper columnist, and academic. She teaches at the University of Toronto and the Art Gallery of Ontario, and her books include Pearl, Queen Rat, and Dorothy L'Amour, Paul's Case and Life Is About Losing Everything.
