This TUESDAY! Brendan Short to read at The Parlor Tuesday, September 1, at 7pm

Brendan will read from his debut novel, Dream City (MacAdam/Cage), which follows dreamer Michael Halligan from a childhood in Depression-era Chicago through an adulthood spent trying to collect the comic-book stories he loved as a kid and make sense of an arbitrary and unkind world. Learn more about Brendan at www.brendanshort.net

Dream City has been called “powerful” (Chicago Magazine), “terrific” (Austin American-Statesman), “complex” (San Francisco Chronicle) and “an impressively mature first effort…Highly recommended” (Library Journal). According to Rod Lott at the Oklahoma Gazette, “It’s rare that a novel can affect and haunt the reader to a marked degree, but this one does.”

Following his 30 minute reading, Brendan will take questions from the audience.

As always, the event will be recorded and published on-line for your repeated listening pleasure on iTunes and at www.theparlorreads.com

All readings take place at 1511 N. Milwaukee Ave, 2nd Floor
