Rich Hoffman's Interference and Other Stories

Join us on January 28th from 7:00 - 8:00 pm at Prince Books as we welcome Rich Hoffman and his new book Interference & Other Stories.

Richard Hoffman is also the author of Half the House: A Memoir and the poetry collections, Without Paradise and Gold Star Road, winner of the 2006 Barrow Street Poetry Prize and the 2009 Sheila Motton Award from the New England Poetry Club.

Here's what critics have to say about Interference:

"The stories in Interference are moving, wise, and bracingly unsentimental. Richard Hoffman writes about male sadness and vulnerability with unusual insight and tough-minded compassion." --Tom Perrotta

"These stories of ordinary and extraordinary heartbreak investigate centuries-old themes with details that are at once familiar and surprising. Humorous or brutal, transgressive or redemptive, each story is full of wisdom and beauty." --Kyoko Mori

"These stories are both funny and moving, wise without being pedantic, intelligent without being showy, and experimental without being precious. Richard Hoffman's vision is wide and deep, and he evokes his characters with an artful grace that is a joy to read. Interference is a triumph!"  --Andre Dubus III
