Tim Horvath will be reading and signing his new book of stories, Understories on Tuesday, March 18 from 12:30-1:30 in the Hilton Garden Room.
Of Understories, Small Press Book Review’s Sam Moss said this, “Humor is one of Horvath’s strong suits and it comes usually in the dryer, lighter, more absurd kind. It’s hard to overemphasize how broad Horvath’s voice ranges. This is a talented demonstration of versatility and agility on his part.”
Horvath’s stories have appeared in journals such as Conjunctions, Fiction, The Normal School, and elsewhere. His story “The Understory” was selected by Bill Henderson, founder and president of the Pushcart Press, as the winner of the Raymond Carver Short Story Award. He teaches creative writing in the BFA and low-residency MFA programs at the New Hampshire Institute of Art http://www.nhia.edu/. He received his MFA from the University of New Hampshire, where he won the Thomas Williams Prize. He is the recipient of a Yaddo Fellowship, occasionally blogs for BIG OTHER, and is an assistant prose editor for Camera Obscura.
Horvath’s first novella was Circulation (2008) which won the Won the 2006 Prize of the Society for the Study of the Short Story.
There will be ample time for your questions. Copies of Understories will be available for sale at the reading.
