Feverland book cover Alex Lemon author photo
 
The Doylestown Bookshop will be hosting Alex Lemon, author of Feverland: A Memoir in Shards, on Saturday, December 30th at 2:00pm! Alex Lemon is the author of Happy: A Memoir, and the poetry collections Mosquito, Hallelujah Blackout, Fancy Beasts, and The Wish Book. His writing has appeared in Esquire, Best American Poetry 2008, AGNI, Gulf Coast, Kenyon Review, and Tin House, among others.
 
 
Brain surgery. Assault weapons in the bed of a pickup truck. Rilke, Rodin, and the craters of the moon. Recovery and disintegration. Monkeys stealing an egg outside a temple in Kathmandu. Brushing teeth bloody on long car rides. Pain, ours and what we bring to others. Wildfires in southern California. Rats in Texas. Childhood abuse. Dreams of tigers and blackout nights. The sweetness of mangoes. A son born into a shadowy hospital room. Love. Joy.
 
 
In Feverland, Alex Lemon has created a fragmented exploration of what it means to be a man in the tumult of twenty-first-century America--and a harrowing, associative memoir about how we live with the beauties and horrors of our pasts. How to be here, now? Lemon asks. How to be here, good? Immersed in darkness but shot through with light, this is a thrillingly experimental memoir from one of our most heartfelt and inventive writers.
