Jeremy T Wilson and Andy Mozina

Join us in celebrating the release of Jeremy T Wilson's new book, The Quail Who Wears the Shirt and Andy Mozina's new book, Tandem! 

About The Quail Who Wears the Shirt:  is a magnificent Southern-fried meditation on guilt and karma, a fantastic and truly memorable work about the lies we tell ourselves and the truths that seep through despite our best efforts, a darkly comedic satire as strange and surreal as an onion pie.

About Jeremy: Jeremy T. Wilson grew up in the South but now lives near a great lake. He is a former winner of the Chicago Tribune's Nelson Algren Award for short fiction and the Hessman Trophy, presented by legendary principal Durward U. Hessman to the fifth grade student who could eat the most corn. He is the author of the short story collection Adult Teeth; his work has appeared in The Carolina Quarterly, The Florida Review, Jet Fuel Review, The Masters Review, Sonora Review, Third Coast, The Best Small Fictions 2020, and other publications. He prefers pie over cake, bourbon over scotch, and R.E.M. over U2.

About Tandem: Tandem is a gripping dark comedy about two lives that intersect in the most awful way possible. Andy Mozina's exquisite novel details the absurd lengths we go to in order to avoid uncomfortable truths. (And to cover up murder--although that's such a strong word, isn't it?) It's a mesmerizing book about the weight of guilt and the longing for justice--and the crazy things we do for love.
