Reading: Doug Nufer and Louis Bury

Two writers who flourish under constraints will read from and discuss their work: Doug Nufer, a Seattle writers whose works include Never Again (a novel in which no word is used twice) and his new novel Lifeline Rule (in which vowels and consonants alternate through the entire book), and Louis Bury, an assistant professor of English at Hostos Community College in the Bronx, whose new book, Exercises in Criticism, is a collection of essays that discuss writers like Nufer who write under such self-imposed rules, all written under similar rules themselves. It may sound confusing or perverse, but it leads to a lot of fun.
