Scott Hutchins - A Working Theory of Love

Tuesday, October 30, 2012 - 7:00pm
Scott Hutchins reads from A Working Theory of Love ($25.95). With a lightness of touch that belies pitch-perfect emotional control, a debut novelist takes us on an odyssey of love, grief, and reconciliation that shows us how, once we let go of the idea the trap of our own sad histories—our childhoods, our bad decisions, our miscommunications—we have the chance to be free.

Scott Hutchins, a Truman Capote Fellow in the Wallace Stegner Program at Stanford University, received his MFA from the University of Michigan. His work has appeared in StoryQuarterly, The Rumpus, The New York Times, and Esquire. He currently teaches at Stanford.
