Celebrate the release of The Game We Play by Susan Hope Lanier at The Whistler on Tuesday, September 9, from 6:30-8:30pm. Susan will read from her debut, short story collection along with James Tadd Adcox, Halle Butler, and Jac Jemc.
"Susan Hope Lanier’s collection of brilliant short stories, The Game We Play, is a triumph. Detailing distinct human relationships, moments of connection, and modern crises, these stories—all effortlessly rendered, all deeply felt—evoke the best of Raymond Carver and Lorrie Moore. An outstanding debut that should reaffirm our shared belief in the absolute necessity and imaginative possibility of the short story.” —Joe Meno, author of The Great Perhaps and Hairstyles of the Damned
