This is bound to be a fantastic event!George Saunders said of Your Body is Changing, "There are not many truly funny writers in the world—writers who can make you laugh out loud, make you do that repetitive, mounting-laughter thing, so that you finally have to put the book down and try to catch your breath, while going 'Oh boy, wow, Oh God. Jeez.' Jack Pendarvis is, for me, one such writer."
Jack Pendarvis writes regularly for The Believer and Oxford American. Shut Up, Ugly is his fourth book. (booksense)
