In this era of economic instability, it’s always nice to commiserate about our financial ups and downs. Where better to do so than at the Liars’ League NYC Cash & Credit Show, in which trained readers bring life to humorous personal essays on “the darker side of finance,” including gambling, begging, lying and self-delusion. Come on. Don’t you want to know what Deborah Johnstone means by “Pretending to Be Rich is the Only Revenge”? I know I do! You’ll also hear stories like “Married Name” by Rachel Mann and “Casino Joe” by J.T. Townley, among others. Literary nerds can geek out over trivia questions “based on hard cash and ready money in the pages of your favorite novels.”
