Peter Rock will read from and sign The Shelter Cycle, his new novel. Rock is the author of five previous novels, most recently My Abandonment, and a collection of stories, The Unsettling. He teaches writing at Reed College in Portland, Oregon.
Betsy Burton describes Rock’s language as "a canny mix of narration and interiority, his dialogue juxtaposes the jargon of the sect with the ordinary chatter of kitchen tables and bedrooms, and the land is evoked subtly yet powerfully until all of this—land, home, past, beliefs, family—forms a present that seems at once inescapable and unexpectedly redemptive."
Places in the signing line are reserved for those who purchase the featured book from The King's English.
