It’s a rainy day here in Lincoln, but an excellent day to curl up on the couch with a good read. Between Panic and Desire by Dinty Moore is an unconventional memoir of one man and his culture. Blending narrative and quizzes, memory and numerology, and imagined interviews and conversations with dead presidents on TV, the book dizzily documents the disorienting experience of growing up in a postmodern world. “Insouciant” and “irreverent” are the sort of words that come up in reviews of Dinty W. Moore’s books—and, invariably, “hilarious.”
Since we enjoy Moore’s books (and we hope you do, too) why not come see him this Monday, September 13, at Andrews Hall on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s campus? UNL’s English deparment is hosting the talk and reading in the Bailey Library. The talk will be from 3-4 p.m. and the reading is from 7-9 p.m. It’s not everyday that you get to meet a talented author, so take advantage!
