Please join us on Thursday, August 13th from 7pm-830pm and welcome Baltimore author Kate Wyer. Known for her flash fiction, published within PANK, Wigleaf, and The Collagist, Kate will be celebrating the publication of her novel Black Krim. Tying together three different perspectives, Black Krim is quiet and tense, expertly paced and compelling. Meet the author and pick up a copy of this unexpected summer read.
OVERVIEW: When Corbina finds a man standing barefoot in a field across from her farmhouse, she makes a choice that will challenge every part of her lifestyle.Wyer‘s debut novel, BLACK KRIM, follows three characters, in alternating first-person narratives, as they uncover each other’s motives and desires, as well as their own.
“Heirloom tomatoes lack the hardiness of grocery store hybrid varieties. They are grown in an archaic, inbred fashion; and yet, for all their isolation, they surprise one with their dramatic shapes, colors, and intense flavors-kind of like the characters in Kate Wyer‘s novel, BLACK KRIM. As the roots of their stubborn, closed systems slowly entangle, their surprising desires and tenderness bloom fiercely from these small, hard seeds.” – Jen Michalski, author of THE TIDE KING
“Kate Wyer‘s Black BLACK KRIM is an elegant study of alienation and reconnection-with a warm human heart beneath the Zen-like detachment of its style.” – Madison Smartt Bell, author of ZIG-ZAG WANDERER
