New England Review and the Middlebury College Creative Writing Program are pleased to present author Lindsay Hill, winner of the 2014 PEN USA Literary Award for Fiction.
He will read from and discuss his new novel, Sea of Hooks at Middlebury College’s Axinn Center, Abernethy Room at 4:30 p.m.
New York magazine and Publishers Weekly both named Sea of Hooks a top 10 book of 2013. Excerpts of its opening chapters are featured in New England Review (34.2). Publishers Weekly describes the book as “an almost impossibly sustained performance from beginning to end. Nearly every paragraph astonishes, every moment rich with magic and daring.”
Lindsay Hill was born in San Francisco and graduated from Bard College. Since 1974, he has published six books of poetry and his work has appeared in a wide variety of literary journals. Sea of Hooks is his first novel, the product of nearly twenty years of work. His other writing and editorial projects include the production of a series of recordings of innovative writing under the Spoken Engine label, and the co-editing, with Paul Naylor, of the literary journal Facture. Since leaving a career in banking, he has worked in the nonprofit sector. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife, the painter Nita Hill.
