numberofmissingThurs, November 14th, 7pm

Please join us for this special event. Adam Berlin will be in-store reading excerpts from his newest publication, “The Number of Missing”, discussing the writing process, and signing copies of his book. Books are now available in shop for purchase.

Beautifully raw and honest, Adam Berlin’s novel follows two characters through the long darkness in New York after 9/11. This is about the running, the drinking, the standing still, and the unquantifiable missing. Berlin’s book is shattering, real, first-person history, made intimate by a narrator forced to stare at himself against the hole of Ground Zero. -James Frey, author of “A Million Little Pieces.”

Adam Berlin is the author of Both Members of the Club (Texas Review Press/winner of the 2012 Clay Reynolds Novella Prize), Belmondo Style (St. Martin’s Press/winner of the Publishing Triangle’s Ferro-Grumley Award) and Headlock (Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill). His stories and poetry have appeared in numerous journals. He teaches writing at CUNY’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City and co-edits J Journal: New Writing on Justice.
