- We're pleased to be hosting Yuvi Zalkow for an afternoon reading and signing in celebration of his new novel, A Brilliant Novel in the Works. Heartbreaking and hilarious, A Brilliant Novel in the Works is an utterly original debut, praised by Cheryl Strayed (author of Wild) as “the secret love child of the smartest person you’ve ever met and the weirdo who lives down the block.” It's the story of a (slightly?) fictionalized Yuvi, a writer whose novel and personal life are simultaneously unraveling at the seams. His novel and his life blend together as he struggles to pull out of the mess, traveling from his suburban Jewish home in Atlanta to the North Carolina mountains of his father's childhood, to several hospital waiting rooms, to the living room of a grieving Palestinian man, and even to Uranus (and back, of course). Zalkow received his MFA from Antioch University and his stories have been published in Glimmer Train, Narrative Magazine, The Los Angeles Review, Carve Magazine, and others. He is the creator of the "I'm a Failed Writer" online video series and, as he candidly states, he has been rejected more than 600 times by reputable and disreputable journals. He'll be warmly received here at Green Apple at 4PM on Saturday, August 18th -- don't miss it!
