More exciting news has just come in about another OS author! We’d like to extend our congratulations to Andrew Foster Altschul (#62 “The Rules”), whose new novel Deus Ex Machina has been selected for Mediabistro’s book club. To celebrate, they’re throwing a party, and inviting anybody who works with literature or media to come on down on Wednesday, August 17 for some drinks and book-talk. Word is that Altschul might be giving away some copies of his book, which is certainly a reason to come– NPR called it “brilliant…one of the best novels about American culture in years,” and Booklist noted it as “absurd and hilarious…a smartly funny and timely montage which challenges the meaning of celebrity.”
Hang out with Mediabistro and see just why critics are raving about Deus Ex Machina by RSVPing here, and if you’d like to read more about Altschul (who is also the Books Editor at The Rumpus, one of our favorite sites for book-related news), check out his website for updates and links to his work.
Congratulations Andrew, and we hope to see you all on Wednesday!
