  1. The Parallel Apartments Used Hardcover $17.50

3723 SE Hawthorne Blvd. Portland, OR 503 228 4651

Justine Moppett is 34, pregnant, and fleeing an abusive relationship in New York to dig up an even more traumatic childhood in Austin. Waiting for her there is a cast of more than a dozen misfits — each hurtling toward their own calamities and, ultimately, toward each other. A Texan Gabriel García Márquez who writes tragicomic twists reminiscent of John Kennedy Toole, Bill Cotter produces some of the most visceral, absurd, and downright hilarious sentences to be found in fiction today. The Parallel Apartments (McSweeney's) is a bold leap forward for a writer whose protean talents, whose sheer exuberance for language and what a novel can do, marks him as one of the most exciting stylists in America. Joining Cotter at the event will be Annie La Ganga and Rebecca Beegle of the storytelling outfit Grownup Lady Story Company.
