If you are in San Francisco, you must go see the Ruth Asawa retrospective that opens this weekend at the deYoung. I am so in love with this woman's work. I hope I get back to see the show before it closes! The accompanying catalog is definitely on my wish list.
Also, kudos to Brandon Stosuy, who I started reading 10 or 15 years ago when he had his zine and his indie label, for his book Up is Up, But So is Down, which chronicles the NY downtown literary scene, post-punk and pre-Internet, and landed in the Times Review of Books this weekend, yay!
Just a note to say that next week's schedule is - closed Mon/Tues as usual, open Wednesday, closed on Thursday for Thanksgiving, and back open on Friday at noon as always. We don't expect to see many of you as people tend to head to the big shops in the city on Black Friday but if you do come by we will be happy to see you...and no neverending Christmas music we promise!
