D. WYSTAN OWEN and JAMEL BRINKLEY at Books Inc. Berkeley

cover images for Other People's Love Affairs and A Lucky Man

Join Books Inc. in Berkeley for a celebration of Threepenny Review contributors D. Wystan Owen and Jamel Brinkley sharing their respective and equally stunning debut story collections, Other People's Love Affairs and A Lucky Man

"D. Wystan Owen has a keen eye for what falls outside the spotlight and what's hidden underneath the surface. Writing in the tradition of Chekhov, William Trevor, and Alice Munro, Owen's stories remind us that the thrills and the dangers of living oftentimes go hand-in-hand with the everydayness of life. In these stories no loss is too small, each moment counts. Owen is not a trendy writer, but a classic one." -- Yiyun Li, author of Dear Friend, from My Life I Write to You in Your Life 

"With stunning clarity and generosity of detail, each of the nine stories leaves its own lasting impression, while the book as a whole coalesces into a devastating tapestry of confused masculinity, familial responsibility, and the intractable power of privilege to impede upon and redraw the boundaries of a life."--American Short Fiction
