Litquake event: Lisa Zeidner reads from Love Bomb ($26.00), an inventive, mordantly funny novel about love, marriage, stalkers, and the indignities of parenthood. Love Bomb, a serious frolic written out of deep affection for all that it skewers, begins as a hostage drama and blossoms into a far-reaching tale about the infinite varieties of passion and heartbreak.
Lisa Zeidner has published four novels, including the critically acclaimed Layover, and two books of poems. Her stories, reviews, and essays have appeared in The New York Times, Slate, GQ, Tin House, and elsewhere.
