Author Stephen Hren will read from his latest book, Max's Hungry Ghost. Set in the near future of roaming double-wides and alligator-infested potholes, this ribald dystopian comedy follows the story of a zany cast of characters as they struggle to make ends meet before being consumed by their engorged and wayward genitalia. Part science-fiction allegory, part pornographic fairy tale, best read naked with a strong pina colada relaxing in the bean patch. Hren is a Durham author and an earthonaut exploring inner and outer reaches on an ancient earth overrun by a bipedal adolescent juggernaut ~ his beautiful and wondrous brothers and sisters. He will be in the shop to read and sign books.
