Matthew Binder & James Reich - Rescheduled

Friday, September 22, 2023 - 6:00pm

Join us for a reading, Q & A, and signing with authors Matt Binder and James Reich! 

Pure Cosmos Club is an inventive, antic picaresque with a satirical eye trained on spiritual and aesthetic hucksterism. Matthew Binder sets them up and knocks them down in this witty, energetic novel. Long live Blanche the dog!”
—Sam Lipsyte, author of The Ask

“In the world of Pure Cosmos Club, art is a vain posture, enlightenment is an elaborate con, and delusion is a way of life. Matthew Binder’s ingenious satire captures the absurdities of our fraught moment with a startling mix of laugh-out-loud hilarity and subtle melancholy. It’s a novel you won’t shake anytime soon.” 
—Jeff Jackson, author of Destroy All Monsters

“In The Moth for the Star, James Reich grips the reader from the first page and doesn't let go. Across sweeping landscapes and eras, from the 1929 market crash to post-apocalyptic environmental ruin, Reich builds a narrative storm that is menacing, inventive, and beautifully blade-sharp." —Anne Valente, author of Our Hearts Will Burn Us Down

“Hypnotic, brooding, and ultimately spellbinding, The Moth for the Star is a marvel of psychological suspense rendered in prose as polished and shining as the novel’s twin protagonists, who slice through space and time with the cold detachment of a steel razor.” —Chuck Greaves, author of The Chimera Club
