Reading: Chris McCormick at Barn Light East

Come out to The Barn Light East on Wednesday, May 25th at 7:00pm to hear Chris McCormick read from his debut collection, Desert Boys. Tsunami Books will be selling copies before and after the reading. 

Karen Russell digs it. She says he's got swagger. Kirkus says it's a "stunningly good debut." Chigozie Obioma calls him a "young master." 

"These linked stories assemble into a kind of compound eye through which we glimpse an oft-forgotten corner of California and, most superbly, a fresh take on masculine Americana. Chris McCormick is the artsy outsider, the affectionate anthropologist, the near-feral boy with a wide-angle lens on history." Claire Vaye Watkins, author of Gold Frame Citrus and Battleborn.
