Mark Leyner & Sam Lipsyte 


Thu., March 29, 7:30 p.m. 2012; FREE

New York Times best-selling comic author of Why Do Men Have Nipples? and The Tetherballs of Bougainville Mark Leyner discusses his highly-anticipated new novel, The Sugar Frosted Nutsack with New York City-based novelist Sam Lipsyte (The Ask) at Greenlight Bookstore. High above the bustling streets of Dubai, in the world's tallest and most luxurious skyscraper, reside the gods and goddesses of the modern world. Since they emerged 14 billion years ago from a bus blaring a tune remarkably similar to the Mister Softee jingle, they've wreaked mischief and havoc on mankind. Unable to control their jealousies, the gods have splintered into several factions, led by the immortal enemies XOXO, Shanice, La Felina, Fast-Cooking Ali, and Mogul Magoo. Ritualistically recited by a cast of drug-addled bards, The Sugar Frosted Nutsack is an epic story. A raucous tale of gods and men confronting lust, ambition, death, and the eternal verities, it is a wildly fun, wickedly fast gambol through the unmapped corridors of the imagination. Join us for a reading by Mark Leyner and a discussion with friend and fellow novelist Sam Lipsyte.
