Meet David Hirzel and other authors in Pacifica

April 11, 2012


Pacifica writer David Hirzel will be one of the authors appearing at Florey’s Books Sunday, April 22, at 2 p.m. The anthology Fault Zone: Stepping Up to the Edge will be on sale at Florey’s.

Meet Hirzel and 6 other Bay Area writers who appear in the Fault Zone anthology . Have some cheese. Have some wine. Buy a book and get it signed.

Here’s a taste of some of Dave’s work in Fault Zone. These are the first couple of stanzas of “Flying South over the San Andreas.”

From thirty-five thousand feet, the fault is easy to see
if you know where to look. It can’t be seen close up.
You have to get far enough away that the scree
and chaparral become mere textures on a landscape.

It’s just a superficial scratch arrow-straight, cut straight
through range and basin all the same. The shape
of earth’s face receives the scar, a bloodless cut
that hints at hidden damage beneath the slope.
