What’s not to like about Henry James Korn performing excerpts from his hilarious novel Amerikan Krazy at Lenny’s Deli on Sunday, May 1st at 3 pm? We’re offering coffee, cookies and a highly entertaining, free-thinking mini-show about our nation’s past, present and future. Korn’s zany new book is a movie — so be there or be square.
Have you missed my recent appearances at Chevalier’s, BC Space, or at PowPAC Theater? You’re still in luck…

My old friend and occasional co-conspirator Henry Korn reads from and signs copies of his new darkly satiric novel Amerikan Krazy.
Henry is the former Director of Arts & Culture for the City of Beverly Hills, and it was through him and then-Library Director Michael Steinfeld that I was able to bring dozens of programs to the Library and City Hall Plaza. Henry’s wife, Donna Stein, is an accomplished art curator, educator and current Deputy Director of the new Wende Museum (Museum of the Cold War) in Culver City.
Please join us at Lenny’s — and stay afterwards for dinner!
The book signing & launch party at PowPAC is almost half sold out. Get your reservations soon!

The audio podcast version of my interview yesterday on KUCI’s “Ask a Leader” is available to listen or download:
In the interview, I discuss–for the first time publicly–my next book Zionista.

“I hope you don’t mind if I share the little sketch I had to make seeing you reading in such a confident and slightly ironic way.”
I go on KUCI FM 88.9 Ask a Leader program on Tuesday, March 15 at 9:30 AM, and, if prompted by my host Claudia Shambaugh, I may have a few choice things to say about the privatization of the Orange County Great Park in the context of my novel Amerikan Krazy which is also about the corporate capture of every single square inch of public and private psychological and physical space in the universe.
The Road to Socialism is socializing, so thanks for joining the Amerikan Krazy Party!
HUGE thanks to everyone who caucused at the Super Wednesday launch party for Amerikan Krazy by Henry James Korn at Chevalier’s Books, one of Southern California’s premier independent booksellers. This venerable Los Angeles literary Mecca, founded in 1940, drew a standing room only crowd comprising lovers of socio-political satire and art, film, and book world friends of the author and publisher.
Bert Deixler, a law partner at Kendall Brill Kelly LLP and co-owner of Chevalier’s, welcomed guests and introduced Amerikan Krazy’s publisher, Chris Aldrich of Boffo Socko Books, as well as author Henry James Korn who animated his reading by impersonating numerous characters.
Korn’s rollicking thirty-minute show was warmly received and sales of the hardcover version of his debut novel were brisk. According to Bert Deixler, “Amerikan Krazy is wonderful and we sold 40 books, which is a lot. I think Kareem Abdul-Jabbar only sold 33 books when he appeared at Chevalier’s last month,” continued the attorney and Los Angeles Review of Books board member, “but then again that could have been Kareem’s LA Lakers uniform number.”
We’ll be launching Amerikan Krazy on March 2, 2016 at Chevalier’s Books in Los Angeles.
