A Portrait of the Marginalized and Outcast, a Short Story Collection Book Talk & Signing
Lidia Yuknavitch is the nationally bestselling author of multiple novels including The Book of Joan, The Small Backs of Children, and the memoir The Chronology of Water. She will discuss and sign Verge: Stories ($26.00 Riverhead Books), a fiercely empathetic group portrait of the marginalized and outcast in moments of crisis, from one of the most urgent contemporary voices in American fiction.
In this book, an 8-year-old trauma victim is enlisted as an underground courier, rushing frozen organs through the alleys of Eastern Europe; a young janitor transforms discarded objects into a fantastical, sprawling miniature city until a shocking discovery forces him to rethink his creation; a child tells off a pack of schoolyard tormentors with the spirited invention of an eleventh commandment; and much more.
