Join us as Massachusetts-based author Yarrow Paisley makes his Texas debut with a reading from his first full-length collection of narrations, I, No Other. Paisley’s absurdist narratives are somewhat in the spirit of, and absolutely as contrast to, the work of Rimbaud. Their pain is as vital as their delight. Joining Yarrow will be Austin-based writer Felix Morgan.
Yarrow Paisley is an exciting new author in the field of literary speculative fiction, because his stories have fascinating originality, disturbing atmosphere and captivating strangeness. —RisingShadow
Yarrow Paisley’s first full-length collection, I, No Other is a cerebral defibrillator you forgot had been implanted until it routinely—and unexpectedly—shocks you back to life. They may hurt at times, the jolts of these agitations, but it is a vital hurt. With a cast of narrators on the brink of discovery in all its forms, I, No Other collects Yarrow Paisley’s most exquisite absurdist interludes.
