The Audio Series - Robert Kloss
Our audio series "The Authors Read. We Listen." is an incredibly special one for us. Hatched in a NYC club during BEA week, this feature requires more work of the author than any of the ones that have come before. And that makes it all the more sweeter when you see, or rather, hear them read excerpts from their own novels, in their own voices, the way their stories were meant to be heard.
Today, Robert Kloss is reading an excerpt from his upcoming release The Alligators of Abraham. Robert Kloss is also the author of How the Days of Love & Diphtheria. He is found online at robert-kloss.com. Mud Luscious Press drops the book November 15th.

The word on The Alligators of Abraham:
Robert Kloss's The Alligators of Abraham is a fever dream built from the fly strewn corpses of armies, the megalomania of generals, the madness of widows, the fires of mourning, the fury of the poor, the indifference of the wealthy, and the ravenous hissing of those alligators who have ever plagued the shores of our national nightmares. With a cover design and interior illustrations by Matt Kish (author of Tin House's Moby-Dick in Pictures), this is a Civil War epic unlike any other.

And due to some incredibly fortunate timing, if you are looking for more Kloss, you can find texts inspired by The Alligators of Abraham at Sundog Lit, the author's playlist, and a shortie by Kloss titled "The Inheritance of Man".
