Dave Kress

Exhibit X: A Series of Readings in New Fiction

Presented at:
Hallwalls

Dave Kress is the author of two works of fiction: Counting Zero, a novel, and Martians, a creature. A new novel, Glorified—or—Thermometers of God, will be published in 2007. He is an Assistant Professor of English at the University of Maine-Orono, where he teaches creative writing and contemporary literature.

"Dave Kress's first novel reminds us how intelligent a form the novel can be in the right hands. Counting Zero is a keenly apprehended story, written with articulate zest and a voracious appetite for the things of everyday life seen in consummate detail. Mr. Kress has begun what promises to be a sparkling career as a novelist. Yes, Virginia, there are still some stylists on the Rialto" (Paul West).

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
