TONY EARLEY presents MR. TALL
Malaprop's Bookstore & Cafe, Thursday, September 4 at 7pm
One of our favorites, Tony Earley, will discuss his newest book, Mr. Tall: A Novella and Stories. Featuring a diverse cast of characters including the skunk ape (a southern variant of Bigfoot), the ghost of Jesse James, and a bone-tired Jack the Giant Killer, Earley exhibits the same charms that we loved in Jim the Boy, The blue star, and many other of his earlier works. Publishers Weekly says, “Earley has grown up. Even if apple orchards still conceal secrets, mountain hollows house strange denizens, and the trains rumble reassuringly in the distance, there is undoubtedly a hard edge to this collection... Welcome, perhaps, to the Late Earley.”

Location: Street: 55 Haywood St City: Asheville, Province: North Carolina Postal Code: 28801 Country: United States (added from IndieBound)

Author event: Tony Earley - Mr. Tall: A Novella and Stories
Park Road Books, Wednesday, September 3 at 7pm
The highly anticipated return of Tony Earley, celebrated author of "Jim the Boy"

Two decades after his debut collection Here We Are in Paradise (LB, 2/94) heralded Tony Earley as one of the most accomplished writers of his generation, the rueful, bittersweet, and riotous stories of "Mr. Tall "reestablish him as a mythmaker and tale spinner of the first rank. These stories introduce us not only to ordinary people seeking to live extraordinary lives, but also to the skunk ape (a southern variant of Bigfoot), the ghost of Jesse James, and a bone-tired Jack the Giant Killer. Whether it's Appalachia, Nashville, the Carolina Coast, or a make-believe land of talking dogs, each world Earley creates is indelible.

Location: Street: 4139 Park Road Additional: Park Road Shopping Center City: Charlotte, Province: North Carolina Postal Code: 28209-2229 Country: United States (added from IndieBound)
