WRITER'S BLOCK BOOKSTORE PRESENTS:
Winter Park, FL (October 26, 2016) On November, Writer's Block Bookstore will host Bestselling Author Nathan Hill, most notable for his debut novel, The Nix. The event will be NOVEMBER 29 from 6PM – 8PM Nathan Hill will be promoting his debut novel The Nix.
Nathan Hill is a New York Times bestselling author and an Associate Professor of English at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. His debut novel The Nix was named as one of fall’s best books by Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Audible, Powell’s, IndieNext, Entertainment Weekly, Vogue, and many others. The Nix will be published worldwide in more than 20 languages. His short stories have been published in many literary journals, including The Iowa Review, Agni, The Gettysburg Review, The Denver Quarterly, and Fiction, which awarded him its annual Fiction Prize.
In The Nix it’s 2011, and Samuel Andresen-Anderson—college professor, stalled writer—has a Nix of his own: his mother, Faye. He hasn’t seen her in decades, not since she abandoned the family when he was a boy. Now she’s reappeared, having committed an absurd crime that electrifies the nightly news, beguiles the internet, and inflames a politically divided country. The media paints Faye as a radical hippie with a sordid past, but as far as Samuel knows, his mother was an ordinary girl, who married her high-school sweetheart. Which version of his mother is true? Two facts are certain: she’s facing some serious charges, and she needs Samuel’s help.
Praise for The Nix: “Hill has so much talent to burn that he can pull off just about any style, imagine himself into any person and convincingly portray any place or time. “The Nix” is hugely entertaining and unfailingly smart, and the author seems incapable of writing a pedestrian sentence or spinning a boring story.” —The New York Times Book Review
Event will take place November 29 from 6pm – 8pm at Writer’s Block Bookstore
