Book Launch: Samantha Hunt presents The Dark Dark
In conversation with James Hannaham
Wine reception to follow
From Samantha Hunt, award-winning and acclaimed author of Mr. Splitfoot, comes a collection of ten haunting, inventive tales that bring us to the brink. The Dark Dark blends the literary and the fantastic and presents characters on the verge—girls turning into women, women turning into deer, people doubling or becoming ghosts, and more. Hunt playfully pushes the bounds of the expected and fills every corner with vibrant life, imagining numerous ways in which the weird might poke its way through the mundane. “The Dark Dark reads like a feminist manifesto threaded through imaginative fiction,” (Daniel Johnson, The Paris Review). Hunt presents her work in conversation with Greenlight neighbor James Hannaham, author of the critically acclaimed novel Delicious Foods, followed by a wine reception.
