Watson tells of strange tales at Burke’s
By Corey Mesler
Fiction writer Brad Watson will be at Burke’s Book Store on Tuesday, March 30th, from 5:30–6:30 pm to read from and sign copies of his new book of stories, Aliens in the Prime of Their Lives. Reading will begin at 6 pm.
Aliens in the Prime of Their Lives includes dark and brilliant tales capturing the strangeness of human (and almost human) life. In this, his first collection of stories since Last Days of the Dog-Men, Brad Watson takes us even deeper into the riotous, appalling, and mournful oddity of human beings.
Brad Watson teaches creative writing at the University of Wyoming, Laramie. His first collection, Last Days of the Dog-Men, won the Sue Kauffman Award for First Fiction from the American Academy of Arts and Letters; his first novel, The Heaven of Mercury, was a finalist for the National Book Award.
