Each ticket includes a copy of Chuck Klosterman's new book 'Raised in Captivity: Fictional Nonfiction'.
Klostermaniacs rejoice: Boswell Book Company and Turner Hall Ballroom present a special evening with beloved cultural critic Cluck Klosterman, in conversation with Doug Gordon, producer and host of WPR's 'BETA'! Klosterman's latest release, 'Raised in Captivity', is a razor-sharp, hilarious collection of "fictional non-fiction" - stories so true they had to be wrapped in fiction for our own protection.
'Raised in Captivity' is ceaselessly inventive, hostile to corniness in all its forms and mean only to the things that really deserve it. Klosterman's wildly entertaining and mind-bending stories are microdoses of straight dope, a fever graph of our deepest unvoiced hopes, fears and preoccupations: A man flying first class discovers a puma in the lavatory. A band wrestles with new-found fame when its song becomes a white supremacist anthem. A man sees a whale struck by lightning and knows that everything about his life has to change. The funny, wise and weird converge in one of the most original story collections in recent memory, one that marks a cosmic leap forward for one of our most consistently interesting writers, the man The Los Angeles Times says, "has a knack for holding up a magical high-def mirror to American pop culture."
