Made a New Year's resolution to read more? Keep that goal with the Science Fiction Book Club. They'll be discussing Max Barry's Lexicon on Saturday, January 10, 10:30 A.M. Receive 10% off book club selections.
Max Barry's newest novel manages to be a gripping, page-turning thriller as well as a phenomenally intelligent dissertation on language's raw, neurological power. Barry manages to maintain a blistering pace inside an ingenious, complex plot structure with seeming ease while he takes the time to explore conspiracy theories, intense paranoia, privacy concerns in an internet era, and countless other frightening ideas for your brain to chew on long after the book is over. Lexicon is simultaneously brainy and muscular, like a Heisman trophy winner who just happens to work as a semiotics professor on the side. -- Hank Stephenson, Flyleaf Books, Chapel Hill, NC

Everyone's excited about the latest from Max Barry, the author of Jennifer Government. Lexicon was one of this summer's "High-Temperature Reading" recommendations by Lev Grossman in Time: "Imagine, if you will, a secret group of people called Poets who have the power to control others simply by speaking to them. Barry has, and the result is an extraordinarily fast, funny, cerebral thriller."

Writers’ influences extend far beyond the things they read. The creative impulse is driven by experience, by people they’ve met, places they’ve been and, in many cases, the music they’ve listened to. In partnership with Melbourne's iconic 3RRR, The Writer's Mix Tape is an exploration of the music that has run through our writers’ lives. Each month a different 3RRR broadcaster will interview a notable writer about the songs that have most moved and shaped their career. Short snippets from the songs will be interspersed between intimate chat, outlining personal and writerly connections to each piece of music. Playwrights and poets, novelists and essayists, with some of Melbourne’s finest broadcasters we dig a little deeper to find the soundtrack to their creative and professional lives. A free event, but booking is recommended. (trackbianca)… (mais)
