March 22, 2011

McNally Jackson, 52 Prince Street New York, NY 
The latest installment of the National Book Critics Circle's NBCC Reads asks: What books would you like to see back in print? Join us for a discussion of the titles that have disappeared—wrongfully, unjustifiably—from bookstore shelves. (McNally Jackson can show off New York City's first Espresso machine; more on that here.)

Moderator: A Brooklyn-based writer and critic, Eric Banks is the former editor of Bookforum and senior editor of Artforum. He curated this series of NBCC Reads.


Gary Giddins wrote the "Weather Bird" column for the Village Voice for 30 years. He won the 1998 National Book Critics Circle award for criticism for Visions of Jazz. His NBCC Reads picks include The Third Pillar by Soma Morgenstern, Singerman and its superior sequel This Man Is My Brother (published in England as Sons of Singerman) by Myron Brinig, Come on Out, Daddy by Bernard Wolfe, Prince Bart by Jay Richard Kennedy, ome Came Running by James Jones,The Great Audience by Gilbert Seldes,Troupers of the Gold Coast by Constance Rourke, The Complete Works, or very nearly, of James Gibbon Huneker,Clowning Through Life by Eddie Foy and Alvin Harlow, The Divine Comedy by Dante via Laurence Binyon, Some Came Running by James Jones, and two books by Dorothy Baker: Young Man with a Horn and Trio.


Michael Miller, an editor at Bookforum magazine, has written for Time Out New York, Spin, the Village Voice Literary Supplement, and the Believer.  His NBCC Reads pick is Renata Adler's Speedboat.
Honor Moore's memoir, The Bishop's Daughter, was a finalist for a National Book Critics Circle Award. Published in May 2008, The Bishop's Daughter was named a Favorite Nonfiction Book of 2008 by the Los Angeles Times, and an Editor's Choice by the New York Times. She will be discussing Victoria Redel's story collection Where the Road Bottoms Out.
