In celebration of the paperback release of Matt Bell’s spectacular novel, IN THE HOUSE UPON THE DIRT BETWEEN THE LAKE AND THE WOODS, join us May 30th at 7pm as Short Story Live features selections from his first collection, HOW THEY WERE FOUND--now out of print! This might just be the only chance you get to experience the early works of a writer we are calling an emerging contemporary master. And you don’t want to miss it! Like his novel, Matt’s short fiction always manages to straddle the line between otherworldly weirdness and universal truth, exuding a mythic quality at once ancient, modern and timeless. There is no other author like him working today. His writing is incantatory, at times closer to epic poetry than fiction. It begs to be read out loud, making this one of the most highly anticipated installments of SSL. It’s going to be a night of fiction to remember. See you there!
