We are delighted to announce we will be hosting author Patrick Nathan here to read from and discuss his book SOME HELL (Graywolf Press). Patrick will be joined by local authors Jessica Anne and Christian Tebordo.
Patrick Nathan is the author of Some Hell, published in February by Graywolf Press. He lives in Minneapolis.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Some Hell is - A wrenching and layered debut novel about a gay teen’s coming-of-age in the aftermath of his father’s suicide.
“This gorgeous, shape-shifting novel dares to address the burden of becoming. Nathan is a true talent, evoking the intensity of adolescence and the gut-punch we feel when reality comes bearing down on us. An important work for these turbulent times.”
— Garrard Conley, author of Boy Erased
