Left Bank Books welcomes St. Louis authors and Dorothy Press co-founders Martin Riker and Danielle Dutton, who will read from and sign their new books, “Samuel Johnson’s Eternal Return” and “SPRAWL”!
A passive action-novel, a ghost story of the most unexpected sort, Martin Riker’s wholly original debut is about the ways experience is mediated, the unstoppable drive for human connection, and the struggle to be more fully alive in the world.
When Danielle Dutton’s “SPRAWL” first broke upon the world in 2010, critics likened it to collage, a poetics of the suburbs, a literal unpacking of et cetera. This updated edition, with a new afterword by Renee Gladman, reopens the space of its “fierce, careful composition.”
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “Samuel Johnson’s Eternal Return” or “SPRAWL” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
