Upcoming event! Barry Webster launches The Lava in My Bones

We are happy to announce that Montreal-based writer Barry Webster will be launching his newest novel, The Lava in My Bones at the Drawn + Quarterly store (211 Bernard O.) on Friday, October 12, at 7pm. Please accept this cordial invitation:


Featuring a geologist who eats rocks, an elusive lover in drag, a teen girl who sweats honey, a Pentecostal Mother on the rampage, The Lava in My Bones is a surreal, spellbinding, portrait of desire told in four voices.


Barry Webster is a classically trained pianist and writer of both fiction and non-fiction. His first book, The Sound of All Flesh (Porcupine's Quill), won the ReLit Award for the best collection of Canadian short fiction published in 2005 and was a finalist for the Hugh MacLennan Prize. His short stories have also been shortlisted for the National Magazine Award and the CBC-Quebec Prize. He has written for a wide variety of publications including The Washington Post, The Toronto Star, Event, Fiddlehead, and The Globe and Mail. He has lived for extended periods of time in Barcelona, London, Banff, and Berlin, where he was staying the night the Wall fell. Originally from Toronto he now resides in East Montreal. (Bio from Barry Webster's website.)

We hope you can join us for this promising evening!
