Audio Series: The Only Living Girl in Chicago


Our audio series "The Authors Read. We Listen."  was originally hatched in a NYC club during BEA back in 2012. It's a fun little series, where authors record themselves reading an excerpt from their own novels, in their own voices, the way their stories were meant to be heard.

Today, Mallory Smart hangs with us, reading a couple excerpts from her forthcoming novel The Only Living Girl In Chicago, which releases August 24th from Trident Press. Mallory is a Chicago-based writer and is the Editor-in-Chief of the publishing house, Maudlin HouseShe also talks about music and literature on the podcast Textual Healing, and horror movies on the podcast, That Horrorcast.

What The Only Living Girl in Chicago is about:

Zoe Clark is back in Chicago, and she already wants to run. But she can never turn her back on her monstrous hometown again. Grief, technology, isolation, and emptiness keep her up at night. Or maybe it's the coffee. Her brain feels like a mosquito trapped in amber, ready to be found in 65 million years by an enterprising paleontologist. Full of anxiety, humor, philosophy, and grief, The Only Living Girl in Chicago is a stunning coming-of-age novel, a later bloomer's bible in constant, dizzying motion.
