A Fun Novelish Reading | Elizeya Quate

Set in the American Midwest, Quate’s debut collection of intertwined short stories explores the paradox of pervasive loneliness in our hyper-connected world. The reading will include words & sounds, plus a short, breezy conversation with the audience.

A delightful ski run through the crags of the millennial mind, THE FACE OF OUR TOWN will dazzle readers with its wordplay and dark, modern humor. This novelish by E. Quate maintains its relentless, addictive selfawareness in the face of loneliness, boredom, and the what-the-fuckedness of everyday life. Do yourself a favor: get off the highway at the Velton exit, and ask for Elwood Munn.
— Kelly Luce, author of Pull Me Under

Here is a young writer with … a maze-like mind and breath of imagination that I find both invigorating and exhausting at the same time. This is a book that breathes heavy and hard to the point where I found myself running out of breath, my heart racing, just to keep pace with his adrenalized prose pyrotechnics. Nabokov said, ‘Without style, I have nothing.’ There is miles of style in these pages, and a very specific sense of something-ness that Quate is in full-throttled control of. As both reader and blurber, I am a happy thrill-rider being swept along for the ride.
— Peter Markus, author of The Fish and the Not Fish
