Jim and Karen Shepard at Newtonville Books

Two for the price of one.  Jim and I will both be at the incomparable Newtonville Books celebrating the publication of our new books from Tin House Books.  Jim’s essays on American movies and politics, TUNNEL AT THE END OF THE LIGHT, is required reading for those of us interested in the stories our country tells itself to explain the position we find ourselves in.  My new story collection, KISS ME SOMEONE, could also be titled: SAD, ANGRY PEOPLE HAVING CREEPY SEX.  Both books come out September 12.  The Newtonville Books event is our first tour stop.  We’d love to see you there: Newtonville Books, Friday September 15 at 7:00 pm.
