HOW TO GET INTO OUR HOUSE AND WHERE WE KEEP THE MONEY BY PANIO GIANOPOULOS
Join us Saturday, September 30th at 6pm to meet author Panio Gianopoulos to discuss his new book How to Get into Our House and Where We Keep the Money: Stories.
A love song to the power of the inadvertent and unplanned, this collection tracks a gaggle of lost souls--a bewildered young medical student; a man jealous of his girlfriend's love for her tiny Pomeranian; and a restless free-diving housewife--as it captures "that itchy, panicky feeling you get when you suspect you've stepped into the slowest line at the supermarket." Its characters persist in lives pockmarked with awkwardness, continually in search of "another parallel version" of themselves. Amid their domestic mayhem, Gianopoulos finds humor and warmth, an animal curled up around a protagonist's ankle "like a misplaced comma." How to Get into Our House and Where We Keep the Money is a witty, telling, urbane exploration of the clumsiness of relationships, of the small wars and gigantic missteps that shape our lives with our nearest and not-always-so-dearest.
