The Naja Marie Aidt Tour [EVENTS]
Two Lines Press is very proud to announce that next month we’ll be conducting our first ever author tour! The person we’ll be touring is the woman to the left, the internationally acclaimed author Naja Marie Aidt, who’s book Baboon we are publishing in October. (Even though the tour’s in September, we will have early copies available for sale at each tour stop, and Naja will be signing.)
Baboon has been getting some really cool advance praise. Sarah Gerard, currently with BOMB magainze, previously at McNally Jackson Bookstore, and the author of Binary Star (publishing next year from Two Dollar Radio) says of this book that “Naja Marie Aidt’s stories ask not only what could be hiding beneath the surface of our otherwise calm lives, but what has been hiding there all along. They are odd and surprising, and refreshing in that they offer no conclusions. She is the writer of dark secrets.” The book has also received praise from Inger Christensen–translator Susanna Nied, World Literature Today, and a bunch of European periodicals.
