“When I read Face in 1985, it struck me as an extraordinary achievement,” Nobel Prize-winning novelist J.M. Coetzee said in 2003. “Rereading it has not changed my estimate. Face continues to haunt me.” Ten years later — and nearly three decades after the book’s initial publication — Cecile Pineda’s award-winning debut novel, which follows a Brazilian man after he suffers a disfiguring injury, remains a singular and enduring achievement, the kind of book that wends its way into your brain and heart and gut and stays there for awhile. Join Pineda at Ohmega Salvage (2407 San Pablo Ave., Berkeley) for a rare reading and discussion of the novel, and keep your eyes peeled — you never know who’ll turn up among her many fans.
