The Leavers is out in bookstores!
For many years, every time I went to a bookstore, I would put my finger into the space where my book would go if it existed and was on the shelves (somewhere between Klosterman and Krauss) and imagine it there, advice I once read from Alexander Chee.
To actually see it on the shelves, in real life? Wow.
If you’re in New York City, my launch party is tonight, May 2, at the Upper East Side Barnes & Noble. I’ll be chatting about The Leavers with Kaitlyn Greenidge, the author of We Love You, Charlie Freeman and signing books.
And I’m doing many other events throughout the NYC area and other cities over the next few months. Hope to see you on the road!
