Ed Pavlić will read from Another Kind of Madness. "Ed Pavlić's Another Kind of Madness is a full-bodied literary achievement bustling with sweat, regret, and sound. Pavlić's narrative audacity and descriptive skill make every sentence and scene in Another Kind of Madness equal parts sorrow song, blues, funk, and of course jazz . . . [A] new kind of novel that is as at once wholly innovative and in deep conversation with so many Black American literary traditions."―Kiese Laymon, author of Heavy

Ed Pavlić is author of seven collections of poems and two critical books. His most recent works are Who Can Afford to Improvise?: James Baldwin and Black Music, the Lyric, and the Listener, and Let’s Let That Are Not Yet: Inferno.
