Henry Hoke presents Open Throat
In conversation with Jackson Howard!
A queer and dangerously hungry mountain lion lives in the drought-devastated land under the Hollywood sign. Lonely and fascinated by humanity’s foibles, the lion spends their days protecting a nearby homeless encampment, observing obnoxious hikers complain about their trauma, and, in quiet moments, grappling with the complexities of their gender identity, memories of a vicious father, and the indignities of sentience. “I have so much language in my brain,” our lion says, “and nowhere to put it.” Named one of the most anticipated books of 2023, Open Throat is woven with humor, imagination, sensuality, and tragedy, taking us on a universal journey through a wondrous and menacing world, as told by a lovable mountain lion. In conversation with Jackson Howard, please join us at Greenlight Bookstore to celebrate Henry Hoke's star-making novel, Open Throat.
