Arsenal Pulp Press, Broken Pencil, Coach House Books and Type Books present an evening of ‘dangerous literature’ at Supermarket on April 14.
Tamara Faith Berger and Daniel Allen Cox kick off their Toronto-Montreal-Ottawa ‘WOLF MAIDEN’ book tour with some help from Toronto writer Derek Lowes, whose story ‘Jody Gets It‘ appeared in Broken Pencil issue 52.
Tamara Faith Berger (Lie With Me, The Way of the Whore) will read from her much-anticipated new novel, Maidenhead, traversing the desperate, wild spaces of the self-consciousness of a teenage girl, Myra, who enters unfamiliar worlds of sex, porn, race and class.
”At the risk of sounding grandiose, Maidenhead is a masterpiece.’ – Lisa Foad, Quill & Quire
In this taut, beautifully layered novel by Lambda Literary, ReLit, and Ferro-Grumley Award finalist Cox (Shuck, Krakow Melt), Michael-David is a paranoid actor who feels that fame has ruined him. When a film shoot with wolves for co-stars takes a troubling turn, a haunting and cinematic romp through identity crisis begins.
‘A slick, sexy tale about hunger, fame and the lives we live below the surface.’
—Brian Francis, author of Fruit and Natural Order
Derek Lowes – ‘Jody Gets It’
Derek Lowes writes fiction and makes art in his spare time. He lives and works in Toronto, and will present a story that Broken Pencil editor Hal Niedzviecki describes as ‘sick, twisted, great.’
