  • Reading and discussion with renowned author Barry Gifford to celebrate the release of THE ROY STORIES

    November 21, 2013


    Thursday, November 21st @ 7:00pm
    City Lights Books
    261 Columbus Ave.
    San Francisco, CA 94133

    Barry Gifford will be at City Lights Books on Thursday, November 21st at 7pm to discuss his newest story collection, The Roy Stories, and his first full-length novel Landscape With Traveler, in print for the first time in fifteen years.

    Barry will be joined by novelist, singer & songwriter, Willy Vlautin.

    Spanning time and space—the Southern and Midwestern United States from the 1940s through the early 1960s—The Roy Stories chronicle the personal history of Gifford from Chicago to the deep south, reminiscent of Hemingway’s Nick Adams stories. Emotional, exploratory, and brimming with photographic realism.

    Landscape with Traveler, written as the protagonist’s diary, recounts the deep friendship between a middle-aged gay man and a young straight man through vignette-like entries, all the while tracing a history of America from the 1930s through 1970s.
