Celebrate the release of Summer Fun, Jeanne Thornton’s second novel and You’re Pretty Gay, Drew Pisarra’s new collection of short stories. The former has been hailed as “Wildly imaginative . . . Thornton’s writing is as rich as her ideas and spiked with wit.” by Kirkus Reviews while the latter has been described as “a mosaic of wit, surrealism, sex, queerness, memory, mortality and self-discovery” by The Washington Blade.
