Equus @ Jazz Republic

PRAGUE, SUNDAY 6 MAY, 5.30-8.30pm: Equus Press presents a Triple Book Launch / Thor Garcia (The News Clown), Louis Armand (Breakfast at Midnight) & Ken Nash (The Brain Harvest), with special guests Mark Tierney, Peter Boyce Le Couteur & Eliška Kohoutová @ Jazz Republic, 28.října Street №1, 110 00 Praha 1 – Old Town (entrance from the vestibul of the metro station Můstek B). www.equuspress.com

Described as “Mickey Spillane meets Georges Bataille on speed” and “acid noir,” Louis Armand’s novel Breakfast at Midnight is a Coltrane-esque “elegy for the other Prague”–following in the tracks of his earlier novel Menudo (2006), which has been called “unrelenting, a flying wedge, an encyclopaedia of the wasteland, an uzi assault pumping desolation lead… inspiring!” https://equuspress.wordpress.com/breakfast-at-midnight/

Publisher’s Weekly has described Thor Garcia‘s monumental all-American satire as “flashy, satirical… entertaining and eminently readable.” Garcia’s TUND (LPB) was hailed in the San Diego City Beat as the strangest collection of short stories of the year (2011). News Clown was a finalist in the 2009 Amazon.com Breakthrough Novel Award. https://equuspress.wordpress.com/the-news-clown/

Ken Nash has been likened to George Saunders and Donald Barthelme, and The Brain Harvest has been described by Clare Wigfall, author of The Loudest Sound and Nothing (Faber & Faber), as “Taut, intelligent, eccentric, and wholly engaging.” https://equuspress.wordpress.com/the-brain-harvest/

"Poetism is the crown of life; Constructivism is its basis" // Karel Teige


“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us. If the book we are reading doesn’t wake us up with a blow on the head, what are we reading it for?…we need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us” // Franz Kafka, letter to Oskar Pollack, 27 January 1904
