On April 2, 2011, Triple Canopy and Dalkey Archive Press presented an afternoon of failure at MoMA PS1 to celebrate the release of The Review of Contemporary Fiction's "Failure" issue, guest-edited by Joshua Cohen and available for purchase here.

In this first of two installments of recordings from the event, poet Eileen Myles reads "Solo Performance" from her new book Inferno (a poet's novel), published last year by OR Books; novelist, poet, and critic Travis Jeppesen delivers his essay "Itchy Homo, or Why I Am So Terrible"; and author Helen Dewitt Skypes in (via faulty wireless connection) from Berlin to read "Re: Awesomeness, or The Internet as Consolation."
