Ronald Sukenick (1932-2004)
Author Ronald Sukenick dead at 72
NEW YORK (AP) _ Ronald Sukenick, a pioneer in the field of American postmodernist literature since the publication of his first work in 1968, has died. He was 72.

Sukenick died at his home in New York on Thursday, according to his brother-in-law, Cameron Bloch, a photo editor at The Associated Press. He had been diagnosed in 1992 with inclusion body myositis, a degenerative muscle disease.

Sukenick published about a dozen works of fiction and literary criticism, starting with his first novel, "Up," in 1968. Other titles include "Mosaic Man," "98.6," and "Cows." His last work is scheduled to be published in the fall, according to his family.
Born in Brooklyn, Sukenick was a champion of structural innovation in contemporary writing, encouraging writers to find new forms and voices with which to express themselves. He was a founding member of the Fiction Collective, an alternative press founded in 1974.

He created the American Book Review in 1977, and had been publisher of Black Ice, a magazine for innovative writing, since 1988.

In 2002, he was awarded the prestigious Morton Dauwen Zabel Award by the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. He also was a winner of an American Book Award.

Sukenick had a doctorate in English literature and held posts at numerous universities and colleges, including Sarah Lawrence, Cornell, and the University of Colorado. Sukenick was also a member of the Authors League of America, the National Book Critics Circle, and the Coordinating Council of Literary Magazines.

Sukenick is survived by his wife, Julia Frey, and his sister, Gloria Sukenick. He was divorced from his first wife, Lynn Luria, who died in 1996.

No funeral will be held, but a memorial service is being planned for the fall.

Here's a funny interview I did with Sukenick: http://www.altx.com/int2/suk.html

Do any of you actually have your Reading tickets yet? It's been months since I ordered mine and I haven't heard a thing.

And am I the only one who's not too impressed with the line up this year?

Metallica are the first band to confirm for this year!

You know who I wish would appear (and have a psychic hunch that they will) is Tenacious D. There are so many other bands that I think would be great this year, electric-six for example (as I'm sure Nai will agree) but I can just imagine a cool summer's evening, a little bit mashed, listning to the D!

Anyways I can't wait to finally see the full line up and heres to hoping that Reading will add a few more new names to it's history!

I don't mean in the Billy-no-mates sense but come to think of it...nevermind!

I'm upset because I can't get to Reading this weekend despite all the promises of half-price tickets and special access the bastards sold out.

So I'm now having to call on all you soon to be smelly people to fill me in with all ur Reading stories.

Will they still be shouting bollocks at 3 o'clock in the morning? Will the portaloos be once again set on fire? (OK I know that was in 2000 but it was quite a special moment for me.) And finally who were the best bands? PLEEEEEEEEEEASE let me know because I'm starting to have withdrawal symptoms already!

28 days and just under 18 hours till READING FESTIVAL

Yesterday my wristband from last year finally gave up and broke, my wrist feels naked after wearing it for 11 months. I made a bet last year with some lads i became good mates with that i could keep my wristband on the longest. Now ive lost the bet as they've still got theirs on and i have to buy the weed for our reunion at this years festival!

Excellent. Yesterday i discovered that Saves the Day are actually playing Reading. I think i kinda subconciously knew. But I did the compulsory celebratory dance around my room :)

All i fear know tho...are clashes. We can only hope there wont be any that are too severe or that cannot be sorted out by simply be organised...or possibly dare i say it slightly more sober than usual. Obviously that being the last resort :)

la la.
