Afternoon Bites: Moody on Lurie, Short Flight/Long Drive, Nick Antosca, and more

“Let’s be clear about why I’m writing about this profile, before going further, this profile about which I have been thinking about for a some months: I’m writing because I am a very partisan adherent of Lurie’s music, and an acquaintance of the man himself, and, I suppose, because I am a person who cares about what Lurie stands for: art, aesthetic ambition, sensitivity, openness, generosity, unpredictability.” At The Rumpus, Rick Moody responds to Tad Friend’s New Yorker piece on John Lurie.
