Elliot Reed with David Shields

From Spokane, where Elliot Reed lives, and from Portland, where Tin House publishes, come Elliot Reed’s splendid new novel, A Key to Treehouse Living (Norton). With him in conversation will be noted Seattle writer and University of Washington professor David Shields, most recently author of Other People. A Key to Treehouse Living is the story of one very particular boy, a boy growing up in the Midwest without parents.

A Key To Treehouse Living’s precocious autodidact manages his abandonment at the world’s hands by remembering that courage might be the ability to not think too long about the worst that can happen. A moving and funny and impressive debut.”  —Jim Shepard.

“Disorienting, weirdly wise, indescribably transparent, impossibly recognizable. Fun, too.” —Joy Williams.
