Andrew Hood launches The Cloaca
Friday May 4th, 7 pm
Join us for the launch of Andrew Hood's The Cloaca. He'll be reading from his book and signing books. Come meet the author and celebrate the fifth anniversary of Invisible Publishing. I have heard rumours about some giveaways and C.A.K.E. (or cake, I guess you could call it).
About The Cloaca:
The Cloaca is a collection of contemporary short fiction by award-winning author Andrew Hood. From community flea markets to early-morning encounters with neighbourhood drunks, these strange, almost confessional stories will make you laugh out loud and feel bad later.
For bonus points, read up on some books Andrew DIDN'T publish.
Daniel Allen Cox launches Basement of Wolves
Saturday May 5th, 7 pm
This is our second launch for Lambda Literary, ReLit, and Ferro-Grumley Award finalist Daniel Allen Cox -- we previously hosted him for Krakow Melt. It's the home stop on his four-city tour, so come welcome this Montrealer back into town.
About Basement of Wolves:
Basement of Wolves is a taut, beautifully layered novel about a paranoid actor who feels that fame has ruined him. A work of dream logic, Basement of Wolves is a haunting and cinematic romp through identity crisis.
"A slick, sexy tale about hunger, fame and the lives we live below the surface. Daniel Allen Cox dives deep into the private realms of celebrities and casualties to reveal our appetite for connection."
—Brian Francis, author of Fruit and Natural Order
