MA – Normal: A Novel Signing

0000_warren-ellis-normal

Author Warren Ellis (Planetary, Moon Knight) appears in conversation with Joe Hill (NOS4A2, The Fireman) at the Brookline Booksmith on Wednesday November 30th at 7:00 pm.

Some people call it “abyss gaze.” Gaze into the abyss all day and the abyss will gaze into you. There are two types of people who think professionally about the future: Foresight strategists who think about ways to evade Our Coming Doom; and strategic forecasters, who think about ways to prepare for Our Coming Doom. It’s something you can’t do for long. The abyss gaze takes hold. A smart, tight, provocative techno-thriller straight out of the very near future Normal calls into question the core principles of how and why we think about the future–and the past, and the now.

MA – Moonglow Signing

000-moonglow-chabon

Author Michael Chabon presents his new novel MOONGLOW at the Coolidge Corner Theatre on Monday November 28, 2016 at 6:00 PM. Tickets available at the link… from Brookline Booksmith.

Following on the heels of his New York Times-bestselling novel Telegraph Avenue, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon delivers, Moonglow the deathbed confession of a man the narrator refers to only as “my grandfather.” It is a tale of madness, of war and adventure, of sex and marriage and desire, of existential doubt and model rocketry. It is also a tour de force of speculative autobiography in which Chabon devises and reveals a secret history of his own imagination. Moonglow is Chabon at his most moving and inventive.

MA – Flying Couch Signing

000000000000000_amykurzweil-flying-couch

Cartoonist Amy Kurzweil appears at Brookline Booksmith on Thursday October 27th at 7:00 pm to sign Flying Couch: A Graphic Memoir!

In Flying Couch Amy Kurzweil tells the stories of three unforgettable women: her own coming-of-age as a young Jewish artist, her mother, a psychologist, and Bubbe, her grandmother, a World War II survivor who escaped from the Warsaw Ghetto. Captivated by Bubbe’s story, Amy turns to her sketchbooks, teaching herself to draw as a way to cope with what she discovers. Entwining the voices and histories of these three wise, hilarious, and very different women, Amy creates a portrait not only of what it means to be part of a family, but also of how each generation bears the imprint of the past.

Cartoonist Box Brown appears in conversation with Liz Prince on Wednesday Oct. 12th at 7:00 at Brookline Booksmith to discuss his new book Tetris: The Games People Play.

Alexey Pajitnov had big ideas about games. In 1984, he created Tetris in his spare time while developing software for the Soviet government. Once Tetris emerged from behind the Iron Curtain, it was an instant hit. A bidding war was sparked, followed by clandestine trips to Moscow, backroom deals, innumerable miscommunications, and outright theft. For the first time and in unparalleled detail, Tetris: The Games People Play tells the true story of the world’s most popular video game. Box Brown will appear in conversation with Liz Prince (Tomboy: A Graphic Memoir).
