Daniel Borzutzky on WTTW PBS Chicago Tonight + readings this week.

"Every book has sentences in it the writer hates, that the writer cannot get rid of, that the writter cannot live without. Any writer who cuts out every sentence that he hates is a writer not worth reading." 
Daniel Borzutzky's chapbook BEDTIME STORIES FOR THE END OF THE WORLD! is currently in production at Bloof Books and is available for preorder here.
You can catch him performing in Chicago this week and also watch these videos of him reading excerpts from his (astounding) work, courtesy of Chicago Tonight WTTW PBS! (Includes video embedded above plus others.)
