Left Bank Books presents an Evening with Christopher Boucher and Joseph Scapellato, in conversation with UMSL creative writing professor Shane Seely

Christopher Boucher’s “Big Giant Floating Head” is a wildly inventive, heartbreaking, and hilarious new novel about a man whose life is falling apart in very bizzare ways. After his wife announces on Twitter that she’s leaving him, Christopher’s life in small-town Coolidge just goes from one catastrophe to another.

Existential noir meets absurd comedy when a young man reluctantly enlists as source material for an art project in Joseph Scapellato’s “The Made-Up Man”. Stanley had known it was a mistake to accept his uncle Lech’s offer to apartment-sit in Prague—he’d known it was one of Lech’s proposals, a thinly veiled setup for some invasive, potentially dangerous performance art project.

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of one of the books from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
