BOOK LAUNCH: The Story of How All Animals Are Equal & Other Tales by Matt Runkle
Friday, December 5, 2014 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

the Paper Nest // 220 East Washington Street

Please drop by as UICB MFA Candidate Matt Runkle debuts his collection of short stories, THE STORY OF HOW ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL & OTHER TALES, newly out from Brooklyn Arts Press. He'll have collages and broadsides of select stories on display and will give a brief, informal reading at around 6 .

 

In the late empire the stories are better than ever, especially if Matt Runkle is the teller of the tale. Not since Richard Brautigan’s Tokyo Montana Express have I read a collection of stories as wildly unpredictable, stories that itch your ear for a long time after reading them.... The Story of How All Animals Are Equal is an instant American classic! 

—CAConrad, author of ECODEVIANCE
