Adam Ross will read at UT's Writers in the Library, Monday, January 28th, 7 p.m. in the John C. Hodges Library auditorium. The reading is free and open to the public.
Adam Ross's debut novel, Mr. Peanut, was described by Steven King as "the most riveting look at the dark side of marriage since Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?…It induced nightmares, at least in this reader. No mean feat."
Ladies and Gentlemen, Ross's short story collection, is "a darkly compelling collection of stories about brothers, loners, lovers, and lives full of good intentions, misunderstandings, and obscured motives."
Ross was from 1999 to 2003 a feature writer and special projects editor for the Nashville Scene, the city's alternative weekly. His column, Mondo Nashville, covered the city's local oddballs and off-kilter luminaries. His cover stories ranged in subjects from the city's porn king, Al Woods, to race relations, to interviews with homegrown movie star, Reese Witherspoon. He also wrote extensively on books and film.
The author will also hold a Q&A session for all interested students, 2-3 p.m., Monday, January 28th, in 1210 McClung Tower.
