"In the mirror I remade my face with sorrow. This will get us free, I told myself. This was what they needed from me. With my right hand I slapped my right cheek. The left cheek with my left hand, then again, harder, alternating sides, following through a little further each time so that eventually my head turned not from the flinch but from the blow." --from One of the Boys by Daniel Magariel Tomorrow Daniel Magariel launches his debut novel ONE OF THE BOYS, about two young brothers and their psychologically and emotionally abusive father. A Greenlight First Editions Club Pick, Magariel's debut has been hailed as "brilliant, urgent, darkly funny, heartbreaking - a tour de force" by George Saunders. He'll be in conversation with Alexandra Schwartz of the New Yorker. RSVP below: https://www.facebook.com/events/456576961340007
"For “Animals Strike Curious Poses” speaks of and for the voiceless hordes with whom we share the earth, shows us how we make sense of them and, crucially, how they make sense for us... this is a book with burning current relevance, and not just because we are living through the sixth great extinction." Check out the NY Times review of ANIMALS STRIKE CURIOUS POSES -- Elena Passarello joins us tonight at PLG to talk about this modern bestiary.
