Lawn Gnome Publishing905 N5th St.Phoenix AZ, 85004Chavisa Woods will be discussing her debut novel, The Albino Album, which follows the life of a little girl who accidentally feeds her mother to an albino tiger and grows up to become a domestic terrorist, for love.
Woods presents a technicolored vision of rural adolescence, the story of a girl with an unpronounceable name—a fiery, unhinged, growling, big-hearted country girl in a dirty black tutu and combat boots who travels along all the bizarre yet familiar byways of human desire from the cornfields of Illinois and the big brass sound of Mardi Gras to the heights of the Empire State Building. In the tradition of the southern gothic novel, Woods presents a new land of contemporary misfits including fire-dancers, pseudo Nazis who breed albino animals, catholic workers, horse thieves, and the archangel Gabriel.
