You are invited to attend a read-through of the first 50,000 words of my novel-in-progress, The Four Senses. RSVP right away on the facebook event page if you would like to read a part!
Reading of The Four Senses
1. a digital device from which to read the text (I’ll email it)
2. food, lots of food: at least two meals to share potluck-style
3. maybe something comfy to sit on, as it’s all metal folding chairs in there
Here is a (cheesy) description of the book:
If you were forced to choose, would you rather be blind or deaf? This is the question that Cassandra Woods, adjunct professor of English and angst-ridden emerging adult, thinks she faces throughout The Four Senses: a 104,000-word piece of new-adult literary fiction that is part road novel, part dystopian literature. As Winston Smith anticipates the bullet to the back of the head throughout George Orwell’s 1984, so Cass knows that her first step towards investigating a possible government conspiracy is the first step towards sensory deprivation. But meanwhile, she is a confused girl struggling to pay the bills, carve out a career path, and manage relationships. Following a series of mysterious blog posts, she sets out on a road trip across the United States that is also the American twenty-something’s emotional journey towards adulthood. Her story is punctuated by philosophical musings on the nature of narrative, of sensory perception, and of the human mind.
