Writing the Weird: Virtual Author Talk & Reading with Christopher Boucher

February 12 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

Christopher Boucher’s novels have been called “crazed,” odd,” and “stunningly surreal;” they feature strange elements like talking Volkswagens, spirits on bicycles, and hearts that leave people’s bodies and take vacations. What draws writers and readers to stories that are unconventional, uncanny or surreal? Chris will take up this question, among others, as he discusses his most recent novel, Big Giant Floating Head (a 2019 Massachusetts Book Award Finalist). Chris will give a short reading from his book, followed by a Q & A.

Christopher Boucher is the author of the novels How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive (2011), Golden Delicious (2016) and Big Giant Floating Head (a 2019 Massachusetts Book Award Finalist), all out from Melville House. He’s also the editor of Jonathan Lethem’s nonfiction collection More Alive and Less Lonely: On Books and Writers (Melville House, 2017) and the managing editor of the literary journal Post Road. Chris lives in western Massachusetts and teaches writing and literature at Boston College. In his free time, he plays the five-string banjo.
