Reading, Wrestling & Ranting


I'll be reading from my punk-wrestling memoir "Beer, Blood & Cornmeal: Seven Years of Incredibly Strange Wrestling" next Thursday, April 29th at 6pm in the Tully's Coffee in the MLK Student Union (on the corner of Bancroft & Telegraph). The book spent an entire week on the Chronicle Bestseller list. Now's your chance to try to fathom why or just remain baffled. Books and, more importantly, nachos will be for sale during the event. Come for the culture but stay for the nachos.
