Ron Currie Reading
Thursday, August 3, 2017 - 5:00pm • Brooks Memorial Library
The One-Eyed Man, Ron Currie's most recent novel, centers on a man who, after his wife passes away, loses his ability to process metaphor, becoming so wedded to the notion of literal fact and is so dedicated to unmasking lies and delusions that he provokes strangers and friends alike. Ron Currie is also the author of the novels Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles and Everything Matters! and the short story collection God is Dead, which was the winner of the New York Public Library's Young Lions Award. Ron received the Addison M. Metcalf Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and his books have been translated into 15 languages. He lives in Portland, Maine.
