Join City Lights and author Matthew McIntosh as he delivers a multimedia presentation and reading from his unconventional new novel theMystery.doc. Reviewers have put McIntosh in league with James Joyce, Marguerite Young, Thomas Pynchon, David Foster Wallace, William T. Vollmann, Karl Ove Knausgaard, and others. The Washington Post has written that “at a time when most novels still resemble their Victorian forebears, it’s refreshing to encounter a novel that actually looks like a 21st-century production” and this evening’s author event will accomplish the same. Following a live reading synchronized to a projected short film, McIntosh will be in conversation with Peter Maravelis of City Lights, with audience Q&A and a signing afterward.
