Store favorite Leni Zumas returns to WORD to celebrate the publication of her new novel, The Listeners. Sam Lipsyte has called Zumas “one of our most exciting young writers,” and we couldn’t agree more — this event comes highly recommended for those who like discovering new voices. Facebook RSVP encouraged, but not required.
Molly says: “Leni Zumas’ first novel is so oddly eerie I couldn’t read it before bed, and so visceral I couldn’t read it over lunch. It’s also one of my favorite books of the year so far, a painful, sharply written story about a thirtysomething former musician, Quinn, dealing with the traumas of her past. Quinn’s perspective is fractured and unforgettable; you’ll never see iPod headphones, among other things, the same way again.”
