Come celebrate the launch of new Ellipsis Press titles by Norman Lock and Joanna Ruocco. A hypnotic tale of artistic obsession, Norman Lock’s SHADOWPLAY tells the story of a Javanese shadow-puppet master. “Wise up and get all you can of Lock,” says Gordon Lish. Joanna Ruocco’s THE MOTHERING COVEN is a “work of wonder” (Carole Maso), a singular act of prose daring. Also reading will be special guest and short story master: Gary Lutz.
Note from me:
I’ve read every book that Ellipsis Press has published, have published reviews of the first two, Waste and Fog & Car, finished one of The Mothering Coven, and just finished reading Shadowplay. Each book is inventive and engaging, and has a singular voice, no small achievement.
