Bookshop Santa Cruz welcomes Lorrie Moore, one of America’s most beloved and admired short-story writers.
Bark is Moore’s newest collection of stories, her first in fifteen years. Eight masterfully-written stories illustrate the extremes and monotonies of American life, love, and irony, in a heartrending mash-up of the tragic and the laugh-out-loud. Richly developed characters cope with dating after divorce, facing the serious illness of a longtime friend, being visited by a ghost, living in a nation on the edge of war, and more.
Moore’s magnificent writing has been published in The New Yorker, The Paris Review, and The Best American Short Stories of the Century.
Please join Bookshop and Ms. Moore for a reading, signing, and audience Q&A.
