Magers & Quinn Booksellers is pleased to celebrate Minnesota’s resilient book culture and to host the launch party for John Jodzio’s short story collection If You Lived Here You’d Already Be Home. Join us at 3038 Hennepin Ave S, Minneapolis–7:30pm, Friday, March 19. This event is free and open to the public.
In twenty-one brief, funny stories, John Jodzio’s new book If You Lived Here You’d Already Be Home documents his characters’ disappointment, frustration, and longing for a home that seems forever out of reach. By turns bleak and hopeful, cruel and tender, this is an exciting literary debut by a writer to watch.
“You may think you’ve read enough stories about penniless gay clowns who can’t get over the loss of a dog, but–I assure you–you have not. John Jodzio is the best kind of modern fiction writer: a thematic traditionalist who feels totally new.”–Chuck Klosterman, author of Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs
We hope you can join us for a fantastic evening. Details are here.–David E
