Up in the Air and Lost in the Meritocracy, Kirn will be here to talk about his new book Blood Will Out: The True Story of a Murder, a Mystery and a Masquerade. The book is Kirn's account of his 15-year relationship with a man who turned out to be an impostor, a con-man, a sociopath, and ultimately a murderer. Join us Wednesday, April 9th at 1PM. Tickets required!
The New York Times. Also from The New York Times, is this piece featuring Mr. Kirn interviewing himself. Yes, you read that correctly. Check it out, it's pretty great.
Robert read Blood Will Out a few months ago and really enjoyed it. Here's what he has to say:
What a ride! Besides being an incredibly gripping story about a bizarre con-man, this book is a fascinating look inside the mind of a writer. Kirn's own culpability about being duped and what that says about writers and the human psyche is the real engine that drives this book. Highly recommended!
The luncheon series takes place in the warm and inviting Third Place Pub. The Pub provides a private, intimate setting for authors to read, speak, and answer questions from a small audience limited to about 40 people. It's a wonderful alternative to the larger format readings that many authors and readers are traditionally used to.
A ticket is required in order to attend. Tickets are $40 and include a copy of the book, as well as a delicious lunch provided by Vios. Seating is limited for this exciting event. Call the Ravenna location for more information and ticket purchases. 206-525-2347.
