This October brings with it the release of D. Foy’s new novel, Patricide. We were tremendous admirers of his 2014 debut, Made to Break, and talked with him about it at the time of its release. And we’re happy to be presenting the New York release event for Patricide, which will feature readings and a discussion from a quartet of writers–D. Foy, Mira Jacob, Will Chancellor, and Elizabeth Crane–on the subject of parents and children in fiction. Vol.1 Brooklyn’s Tobias Carroll will moderate.
