Planes, trains, and automobiles. Also motocycles, or just your legs. Whichever method you prefer, just make sure you use one of them to get to the early book release and signing for the next great American classic, The Lonsesome Go. Join author Tim Lane from 7-10 PM at this Subterranean Books event, in St. Louis, MO, to celebrate this beautifully constructed exploration of drama, myth, and classic American storytelling.
Tim is the author of the acclaimed book, Abandoned Cars, the existenssial noir collecting stories of mystery and Americana. The Lonesome Go is a follow up to those themes, but if we learned anything from college philosophy, these idioms and ruminations are not exactly solveable elements of human life. Which is what makes Lane's work so vibrant in our minds.
Subterranean Books, Tim Lane, and Fantagraphics would be delighted if you joined us Sept. 25 for this anticipated release!
