Zak Smith

Porn Star/Artist/Author Zak Smith Reads Tonight at City Lights

We finally got out to Berkeley last night to meet painter/author Zak Smith, currently on a book tour for the first release of Tin House-published We Did Porn. Nestled in the back room of Moe's Books, Smith read from his newly published memoir, which details his career as an actor in adult films under the name Zak Sabbath. Far from being the stereotypical bohemian artist, Smith's reading is smart, sarcastic, bitchy, and downright hilarious. He challenges us NorCal folk to ask more questions during the Q&A than his LA audiences - we couldn't let them be more "intellectual" than us, could we?
