Lazy Fascist will be attending AWP in Boston next month (March 6-9). We’re sharing a table with ManArchy Magazine. LF authors J.A. Tyler and Scott McClanahan have several off-site readings each throughout the weekend. Drop by our table and say hi.
Following AWP, we’ll be heading to New York for the official release party of Sam Pink’s latest novel, Rontel. Here are the full details:
RONTEL RELEASE PARTY @ Housing Works Bookstore (126 Crosby Street New York, NY 10012)
Co-hosted by Electric Literature and Lazy Fascist Press
Join Electric Literature and Lazy Fascist Press as they celebrate the release of Sam Pink’s Rontel, a novel about the dull pains of never quite becoming an adult.
“Rontel is the funniest book I have ever read.” —Tao Lin
“Funny as hell, searingly honest, and urgently real, Sam Pink’s Rontel puts to shame most modern fiction. His writing perfectly captures the bizarre parade that is Chicago, with all its gloriously odd and wonderful people. This book possesses both the nerve of Nelson Algren and the existential comedy of Albert Camus.” — Joe Meno
