Live from Prairie Lights: Sean Adams
Feb 6, 2020
15 South Dubuque Street, Iowa City, IA 52240
Writers’ Workshop graduate Sean Adams will read from his imaginative and darkly hilarious satire, The Heap. "As intellectually playful as the best of Thomas Pynchon and as sardonically warm as the best of Kurt Vonnegut, The Heap is both a hilarious send-up of life under late capitalism and a moving exploration of the peculiar loneliness of the early 21st century. A masterful and humane gem of a novel."-- Shaun Hamill
