Margaret Malone and Arthur Bradford to Read from Story Collections
Broadway Books is pleased to announce that Margaret Malone and Arthur Bradford will read and discuss their work on Tuesday, February 16th at 7 pm.
Margaret Malone’s debut story collection People Like You delivers an assemblage of characters and quandaries all at once funny, unsettling, subtle, and moving. Malone's people exist, like most of us, in the thick of everyday experience absent of epiphanies, and they are caught off-guard or cast adrift by personal impulses even while wide awake to their own imperfections. They win us over completely although we know they are bound to break our hearts with each confused and conflicted decision they make.
Malone’s writing has appeared in The Missouri Review and Propeller Quarterly, as well as the Forest Avenue Press anthology The Night, and the Rain, and the River. She is an Oregon Arts Commission and Literary Arts fellow, has received two Regional Arts & Culture Council Project Grants, and residencies at The Sitka Center and Soapstone.
Arthur Bradford’s newest collection of stories Turtleface and Beyond is a finalist for a 2016 Oregon Book Award. Turtleface and Beyond is described by Dave Eggers as “uncategorizable and unprecedented, but if pressed, you could call it the improbable spawn of Raymond Carver and Roald Dahl. The world of Bradford's fiction is populated by dreamers, doofuses, banalities, and mysteries, and somehow it's a world you don't want to leave."
Bradford is an O’Henry Prize winning writer and Emmy Nominated filmmaker. His work has appeared in Esquire, McSweeney’s, Vice, and Men’s Journal. Dogwalker, is his previous collection of stories.
