McSweeney’s celebrates the publication of John Brandon’s novel, A Million Heavens, with a reading, drinks (unclear whether they will be free or for sale), and music on July 30, 2012. Stick around afterward for live bluegrass music.
About A Million Heavens: On the top floor of a small hospital, an unlikely piano prodigy lies in a coma, attended to by his gruff, helpless father. Outside the clinic, a motley vigil assembles beneath a reluctant New Mexico winter– strangers in search of answers, a brush with the mystical, or just an escape. To some the boy is a novelty, to other a religion. Just beyond this ragtag circle roams a disconsolate wolf on his nightly rounds, protecting and threatening, learning too much.
