Strut Book Club reads Everything is Awful and You're a Terrible Person @ Strut Second Floor

Let’s Talk Queer Lit!

Come get your book on with us! Join us for our March book club meeting! Monday, March 25th at 7:30 PM on the second floor of Strut for some wine, little snacks and great conversations about literature. Please make sure to read the entire book beforehand and come ready to discuss your thoughts.
Don’t forget, folks: we get a discount at Dog Eared Books in the Castro!

The book, “Everything is Awful and You’re a Terrible Person” by Daniel Zomparelli.

About the Book:
In these unconventional, interconnected stories of first-person narratives that also include text messages and Facebook posts, gay men look for love, steal office supplies, hook up on Grindr, bake pies, see therapists, have threesomes with ghosts, and fear happiness. With wry abandon and a beguiling heart, Everything Is Awful and You’re a Terrible Person is a deadpan, tragicomic exploration of love, desire, and dysfunction in the twenty-first century.

About the Author:
Daniel Zamarelli is editor and founder of Poetry Is Dead magazine, and the author of the poetry collections Davie Street Translations and (with Dina Del Bucchia) Rom Com. This is his first work of fiction.
