Come out to Kramerbooks

I’ll be reading with the fantastic David Ebenbach at Kramerbooks on February 27, 6:30 pm, as we both celebrate the publication of our new books. The reading will be followed by a book signing. I’d love to see you there!

The Guy We Didn’t Invite to the Orgy by David Ebenbach
The stories in The Guy We Didn’t Invite to the Orgy — funny, surprising, compassionate, true to life — are about people navigating the trickiest of landscapes: a world full of other people. Each of these characters wants to know, in her or his own way, given the crazy ups and downs and ins and outs of relationships, is it better to go it alone, or is it better to try to carve out a place for yourself, whatever it takes?

Towline by Holly Karapetkova
“The poems of Holly Karapetkova’s new collection are expansive, ranging in structure from the freest verse to the elegantly flormal, in theme from the broadly universal to the most intensely personal, and in style from classic tragedy to a Daliesque surreal to tragicomedy in the tradition of Beckett. They all return, though, to that same inexorable human conundrum: how to carry grief, to carry on. They give no easy answer, but they help the traveler along the way.” -David Algergotti, author of Millenial Teeth.
