Join Papercuts and UForge Gallery for another evening of endless humor and smart book talk. Dave Hill, contributor to This American Life and Comedy Central actor, will talk with Meredith Goldstein, columnist at the Boston Globe, about his new book of essays DAVE HILL DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE. The book is a painfully funny series of autobiographical essays, centered around the relationship between Dave Hill and his dad, in the wake of his mother's death, as father and son redefine their relationship--and Dave, finally, becomes a man.
Dave's first book of essays TASTEFUL NUDES will soon be a Comedy Central show. Don't miss the chance to hear Dave discuss comedy, writing, and family relationships with entertainment journalist and famed advice columnist Meredith Goldstein.
“Dave Hill is a world-famous rock and roll style icon, or at least that’s what he’ll tell you if you ask him. However, if you read histhoroughly hilarious DAVE HILL DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE, you’ll find that he’s also a warm and witty storyteller.”
“Dave Hill paints a self-portrait of a maddeningly irritating slacker, but what keeps you from wanting to wring his neck are the many moments of profound insight and beauty. DAVE HILL DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE is damn funny and he mentions the band Foghat. What could be better?”
“Just when you think Dave Hill is going to take the easy way out and comment soberly on the human condition, he makes a fart joke and stands up courageously for heavy metal.”
“DAVE HILL DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE will smack you straight across your stupid funny bone.”
