Tuesday December 5, 7:00 PM: Emily Anglin's The Third Person: Reading + Reception

Emily Anglin presents The Third Person (BookThug, 2017). In this new collection of uncanny, darkly humorous short stories, tense professional and personal negotiations between two people become even more complicated when a third person arrives, and disorienting gaps open up between words and reality.

Selected praise for The Third Person:

Prepare yourself for “spontaneous empathy” and for specters, knowledge brokers, and an oddball cast of characters who feel, at once, both familiar and strange. Reading Emily Anglin’s "The Third Person" is like watching the opening sequence of Hitchcock’s "Rear Window."
—Johanna Skibsrud, Scotiabank Giller Prize–winning author of The Sentimentalists and Quartet for the End of Time
