Join us with Matthew Griffin and Nick White discussing and signing their books, Hide, and Sweet and Low, respectively.
Hide: Falling in love in the aftermath of World War II, a gay taxidermist and a veteran are forced to cut all ties with their discriminating North Carolina textile town and share a life of quiet self-sufficiency for decades until one of them falls terminally ill, forcing the other to reckon with the consequences of their isolation.
This book is available in paperback ($18.00).
Sweet and Low: At first glance, the stories in Sweet and Low seem grounded in the every day: they paint pictures of idyllic Southern landscapes, characters fulfilling their roles as students, wives, boyfriends, sons. But they are not what they seem. In these stories, Nick White deconstructs the core qualities of Southern fiction, exposing deeply flawed and fascinating characters--promiscuous academics, aging podcasters, woodpecker assassins, and lawnmower enthusiasts, among others--all on wildly compelling quests. From finding an elusive bear to locating a prized timepiece to making love on the grave of an iconic writer, each story is a thrilling adventure with unexpected turns. White's honest and provocative prose will jolt readers awake with its urgency.
This available in hardcover ($25.00).
