Joe Sola in conversation with Jarett Kobek

When was the last time you read a novel that so clearly, with such wit, simplicity, and imagination captured the rage, love, and absurdity of our current west coast times; a book that rides the precipice of documentary and fiction? I just did, and it’s called, I Hate the Internet by Los Angeles author, Jarett Kobek. On Saturday, February 15, 2020 at 12pm I will be in conversation with Jarett to talk about some of the images from his books and some of the images in my work on view at Honor Fraser. I hope you can make it.
