Kathleen Alcott is today’s guest.  Her debut novel, The Dangers of Proximal Alphabets, is now available from Other Press.

Bookslut raves

Heartbreaking, honest, and wholly engrossing, The Dangers of Proximal Alphabets dredges the depth of love that divides us, unites us, and folds in on itself until we’re nearly crushed under the sweet ache of its weight.

And The Wall Street Journal says

In fluid, bubbling prose, and with a good deal of plaintive humor, Ms. Alcott has written a beautiful story of love and heartbreak.

Monologue topics:  insomnia, nightmares, insomnia tweets, hairy armpits, velociraptors.
