We love Barry Gifford. The writer, once described by the New York Times Book Review as the chronicler of "the decline of the Western world," has produced more than 40 novels, poetry books, and essay collections, and has been the inspiration for two David Lynch films and the author of several stories for VICE.
On Tuesday, November 4, we're reuniting with Gifford at the legendary art house Anthology Film Archives to present Beyond Wild at Heart: An X-Rated Evening with Barry Gifford, a celebration of the 25th anniversary of Lynch's adapted film about star-crossed road voyagers. The evening will also be a fund-raiser for Black Lodge Theater's world-premiere production of Do the Blind Dream? written by Gifford himself.
The night will feature Gifford reading Beyond God and the Devil, his newest installment in the wandering lovers' epic saga, as well as a special screening of the banned-in-America, X-rated version of Wild at Heart. Buy tickets here, and stay tuned for more of Gifford's writing on VICE.
