Patrick Nathan will read from his new novel, Some Hell, published by Graywolf Press. He will be joined in conversation with Writers’ Workshop graduate and author of The House of Impossible Beauties, Joseph Cassara to talk about Some Hell.  “A gripping account of the intricately woven mind of a teenager . . . Nathan has crafted an all-consuming novel in which topics like suicide, homosexuality, parenting, friendship, and psychology make up a precarious tableau in which readers can leave their own subjectivity behind and experience the world from Colin’s singular viewpoint . . . A magnetic first novel combining wit, sex, and apocalyptic reverie.”―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Patrick Nathan's short fiction and essays have appeared in Gulf Coast, Boulevard, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and elsewhere. This is his first novel. He lives in Minneapolis.
