UNCW MFA Alumni Derek Nikitas – The Long Division Monday, October 26 at 7:00 pm Join us at Pomegranate Books on Monday, October 26, 2009, for a reading by Derek Nikitas, from his second literary thriller, The Long Division. Nikitas is an alumni of UNC-Wilmington’s celebrated MFA in Creative Writing program. His first novel, Pyres, published by St. Martin’s Minotaur Press in October 2007, earned the young writer a prestigious Edgar Award nomination. Pyres is now in paperback and available at Pomegranate Books; The Long Division is available by pre-order through Pomegranate Books. In The Long Division, an Atlanta housecleaner flees her nowhere life to reunite with the son she gave up for adoption. The teenage boy joins his long-lost mother on an unlawful road trip that proves how much they both have to lose by finding each other. Elsewhere, a deputy must track down the shooter in a drug-related double murder before other investigators discover the deputy’s illicit ties to the case. The killer is an unbalanced college kid hunted by vengeful drug dealers and the police, haunted by loves both dead and forbidden. When the renegade mother and son arrive, past sins and present gambits will ensnare them in the violent endgame between the deputy and the desperate killer. Pomegranate Books is excited to host Derek for this special reading on Monday, October 26, at 7:00 PM.
