This Week in Love and Shame and Love


“Teeming yet not hyperactive, full of emotion without being mushy, elegant yet intimate, this is a book that gets into your head and makes itself at home there.”

That is praise from The New York Times’ review of Peter Orner’s Love and Shame and Love (November’s Rumpus Book Club pick).

In other Love and Shame and Love news, Orner will be participating in Book Talk Nation on Wednesday, December 14th at 7pm PST. Book Talk Nation is a new series of author interviews, which seeks to support traditional booksellers. Each talk in the series will be hosted by a local bookstore with connections to the featured author. Books Inc. is sponsoring Orner. Listen in.
