"Steve Almond is one of our finest literary provocateurs. His stories are without equal in their beautiful terrible honesty. Stylish and finely wrought, these are tales with the force of life itself." -Junot Díaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao ---------- Echoing a narrative line that includes Kurt Vonnegut and Joseph Heller, William Giraldi’s Busy monsters has been hailed as one of the most exciting fiction debuts in years. Penned with a linguistic bravado that explores the diaphanous line between fiction and fact, this “very funny, very inventive début novel” (The New Yorker) has at last revived the great American picaresque tradition. “The best literary present ... has a delicate sweetness that shows through at just the right moments.” -Ron Charles, Washington Post Book World Join us for an evening sure to be filled with giggles, laughs and even guffaws with these two incredible storytellers.
