Jen Violi read from her novel “Putting Makeup on Dead People” at the Starving Artists’ Series today. My favorite part of her reading was when she vividly described the character’s mother stabbing a piece of blueberry pie with her fork and watching the purple filling slow ooze out. What a way to grab our attention and make us long for more. I can’t wait to cuddle up and finish her book. Does anyone have any pie?
