Amber Tamblyn at Boswell for "Any Man"
Registration is closed for this event, but we have space for walk-ups. Join us for this event at 6 pm.

Join us for a special 6 pm reading from Amber Tamblyn, presenting her blazingly original and unforgettable debut novel Any Man. In this work, her first novel after two lauded collections of poetry, Amber Tamblyn brings to startling life a specter of sexual violence in the shadowy form of Maude, a serial female rapist who preys on men. Register for this event at tamblyn.bpt.me.

This event is free, but you must purchase a book from us to get on the signing line.

A violent serial rapist is on the loose, who goes by the name Maude. She hunts for men at bars, online, at homethe place doesnt matter, neither does the man. Her victims then must live the aftermath of their assault in the form of doubt from the police, feelings of shame alienation from their friends and family and the haunting of a horrible woman who becomes the phantom on which society projects its greatest fears, fascinations, and even misogyny. All the while the police are without leads and the media hounds the victims, publicly dissecting the details of their attack.

What is extraordinary is how as years pass these men learn to heal, by banding together and finding a space to raise their voices. Told in alternating viewpoints, signature to each voice and experience of the victim, these pages crackle with emotion, ranging from horror to breathtaking empathy.

Tamblyn's newest work blends genres of poetry, prose, and elements of suspense to give shape to the shocking narratives of victims of sexual violence, mapping the destructive ways in which our society perpetuates rape culture. As bold as it is timely, Any Man paints a searing portrait of survival and is a tribute to those who have lived through the nightmare of sexual assault.

Attending David Cross's show at the Pabst Theater at 8? We've scheduled our reading at a special time of 6 pm so you can attend both events. And folks who register for this event get 10% off their purchase of Any Man on July 13.
