Daniel Handler presents All the Dirty Parts
In conversation with E. Lockhart, author of Genuine Fraud
From bestselling, award-winning author Daniel Handler (best known for his books for children as Lemony Snicket) comes a gutsy, excitingly honest novel about an all-too-typical teenage boy and his erotic impulses. All The Dirty Parts is an unblinking take on teenage desire in a culture of unrelenting explicitness and shunted communication, where sex feels like love, but no one knows what love feels like. With short chapters in the style of Jenny Offill or Mary Robison, Daniel Handler gives us a tender, brutal, funny portrait of an age when the lens of sex tilts the world. All the Dirty Parts is already highly anticipated; a starred review in Kirkus says, “This interesting experiment by Handler may be the most clear-eyed and honest portrayal of the sexuality of adolescent boys in recent memory.” Handler is joined in conversation by National Book Award finalist and New York Times bestselling YA author E. Lockhart, author of the critically acclaimed We Were Liars and most recently the psychological thriller Genuine Fraud.
