Sam Lipsyte and Gary Lutz

Location: The Renaissance Society
Admission: free
 

This double bill features two outstanding talents in contemporary fiction. Lipsyte's first novel is The Subject Steve, an all too familiar satire of a society littered with cults, failed dotcoms and reality-based sitcoms all hellbent on watching a man die of a mysterious disease called boredom. His previous book is a collection of short stories entitled Venus Drive. Lutz is the author of a collection of shorts entitled Stories In The Worst Way recently issued in paperback by 3rd Bed Press. His stories have been described as "crushingly sad." As Brian Evenson noted, "His phrases strip away all that we have built to hide ourselves from ourselves, revealing the essential ache that crowds beneath our skin." This event will take place in Cobb Hall, Room 402, down the hall from the gallery.
