Greenfield, MA: Tommi Parrish (Men I Trust) Book Launch at 10 Forward

November 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST

  • This event has passed.

Don’t miss the book launch for Tommi Parrish’s brilliant new book, Men I Trust! They’ll be joined by special guests, with readings by Jayson Keery, Eli Nixon, and Kurt Ankeny and performances by Pussy Vision and Father Hotep!

About the book: Tommi Parrish’s sophomore graphic novel establishes them as one of the most exciting voices in contemporary literature.

Eliza is a thirtysomething struggling single mother and poet. Sasha, a twentysomething yearning for direction in life, just moved back in with her parents and dabbles as a sex worker. The two strike up an unlikely friendship that, as it veers toward something more, becomes a deeply resonant exploration of how far people are wil­ling to go to find intimacy in a society that is increasingly not conducive to it.

In Sasha and Eliza, Parrish has created two of the most fully realized characters in recent contemporary fiction. Parrish’s gorgeously painted pages showcase a graceful understanding of body language and ear for dialogue, brilliantly using the medium of comics to depict the dissonance between the characters’ interior and exterior experiences. Men I Trust is about not-always-healthy people attempting to make healthy connections in a disconnected world, and is one of the most moving and insightful works of literary fiction in any medium this year.
