more about this event

Bookshop Santa Cruz staff recommendation:

An homage to literary heavyweights like Hemingway and a playful satire of the writing process, Jansma’s novel details the coming-of-age rivalry between two writers travelling the world. Eradicating the line between truth and fiction, the unreliable protagonist shifts perspective to his own fictional creations, sending the reader down a veritable rabbit hole of narration.
