Kimberly King Parsons - Black Light — in conversation with Mark Doten — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Thursday, September 12, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Drawing comparisons to fierce young fiction talents like Otessa Moshfegh and Carmen Maria Machado, Parsons writes with fearlessness and uncanny insight about the darker regions of the human psyche. Set in Texas, the stories of her eagerly awaited first collection explore lives driven to extremes—whether by compulsions, longing, addiction, or the clash between dreams and real life. Ranging from highways to homes to pay-by-the-hour motels, this fiction teems with unforgettable characters—not least of which is Texas itself—and even more unforgettable language. Parsons will be in conversation with Mark Doten, editor for Soho Press and author of Trump Sky Alpha.
