In the Distance by Hernán Diaz, is a weird western about a lonely Swede traveling America’s frontier in the 1800s. It’s very good.’ The New York Times

Brooklyn: Stephen Florida! Paperback! In Conversation with Gabe Habash at Community Bookstore

Gabe Habash celebrates the paperback launch of his debut novel Stephen Florida, in conversation with 2018 Pulitzer Prize-finalist Hernan Diaz, author of In the DistanceStephen Florida follows a college wrestler in his senior season, when every practice, every match, is a step closer to greatness and a step further from sanity. Profane, manic, and tipping into the uncanny, it’s a story of loneliness, obsession, and the drive to leave a mark. In Hernan Diaz’s In the Distance, a young Swedish boy, separated from his brother, becomes a man; the man, despite himself, becomes a legend and outlaw. Diaz defies the conventions of historical fiction and genre, offering a probing look at the stereotypes that populate our past and a portrait of radical foreignness. Join us for an exciting conversation about these two debut novels! Details here.
