Presentation & Booksigning with Matthew Batt: Sugarhouse
Colfax Avenue: Critically acclaimed writer and journalist Matthew Batt will discuss and sign his memoir Sugarhouse: Turning the Neighborhood Crack House into Our Home Sweet Home (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), an improbably funny account of how the purchase and restoration of a ghastly fixer-upper saves his young marriage. He and his wife spent three years renovating the property themselves, despite their lack of practical experience in construction or even a general aptitude for it.
“It’s hard to write funny, especially when your world is crumbling around you, but in this utterly compelling memoir, Matt Batt makes it look easy. This is a sweet and deeply memorable debut by a writer who’s clearly the real thing.” —Andre Dubus III, author of Townie
