One of our favorite books of 2010 was Adam Levin’s mammoth novel The Instructions, and we’re incredibly excited to hear that he has a new collection out on McSweeney’s: Hot Pink. His publisher has this to say about it:
…in the stories of “Hot Pink,” Levin delivers nine smaller worlds, snow-globes of overweight romantics, legless prodigies, quixotic dollmakers, textbook lovers, dirty old men, insecticidal fathers, nervous comedians, angry mimes, and a dumptruck covered with balloons–all shaken together, colliding and embracing.
We’ll be hosting Levin at the powerHouse Arena on Wednesday, April 4th; he’ll be in conversation with editor Jason Diamond. Also reading will be Adam Wilson (author of Flatscreen) and Karolina Waclawiak (deputy editor of The Believer and author of the forthcoming How To Get Into the Twin Palms.) RSVP on Facebook here.
