JKS Alumnus Book Release

There will be two upcoming book release events for JKS alumnus Laird Hunt’s new novel Kind One held at Innisfree Poetry Bookstore & Cafe and Tattered Cover Bookstore on October 5th and 9th. Called “one of the most talented young writers on the American scene today” by Paul Auster, Laird Hunt is the author of four genre-bending novels: The Impossibly, The Exquisite, Indiana, Indiana and Ray of the Star. His books have been translated and released in France, Italy, and Japan, and The Impossibly is available as an audio book through Iambik Audio. His work has also appeared in several recent anthologies including Noise: Fiction Inspired by Sonic Youth, in which the Village Voice says “Laird Hunt’s ‘Kissability,’ in its distillation of inchoate teenage longing, is . . . as lovely a passage as anything in pop music.”

Congratulations Laird!
