Hugo House hosts this book launch for debut novelist Ross McMeekin and The Hummingbirds (Skyhorse Publishing).
“With sly wit and piercing intelligence, Ross McMeekin’s novel traverses the classic terrain of California noir and manages, almost miraculously, to render it anew. Echoes of Cain, echoes of West, and yet even as the lush, light-struck world of swimming pools and starlets is rendered in all its nearly sinister invitation, the book sneaks up on us with a startling and profound empathy. The Hummingbirds is truly beautiful.” –Matthew Specktor.
Ross McMeekin edits the literary journal Spartan and has received fellowships from Hugo House and the Jack Straw Foundation.
