The author who wrote the great debut novel Swamplandia! is back with her second collection of short stories, Vampires in the Lemon Grove. Both books have been extravagantly praised by critics. She was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for fiction alongside David Foster Wallace. And did I mention she’s just 31? You can hate her all you want, but you should still come out to this reading because she’s a brilliant young writer who we’ll be talking about for decades.
