Halle Butler and Susan Hope Lanier are making a stop in Philadelphia on their east coast book tour! Halle will be reading from her upcoming novel, Jillian. Susan will be reading from her short story collection, The Game We Play.
Come join Curbside authors and share space in the cozy Spiral Bookcase!
Praise for Jillian:
"[Jillian] offers up its characters for hatred and ridicule with such energy, obsessive detail and hopelessness that the reader can't help but read on, through exasperating flinches of sympathy and recognition. A novel that reads like rubbernecking or a junk-food binge, compelling a horrified fascination and bleak laughter in the face of outrageously painted everyday sadness."
Praise for The Game We Play:
"There's such pathos, humor, and sadness in the stories in Susan Hope Lanier's collection, The Game We Play, that I sometimes found myself holding my breath as I turned the pages. Lanier's characters, with their heartbreak and joys, their frustrations and fears, will stay in your thoughts long after you read the final sentence of this accomplished first book."
