In her debut novel, Tess Gunty chronicles life in an all too familiar rustbelt city, Vacca Vale. Set across one week and culminating in a shocking act, The Rabbit Hutch chronicles a town on the brink, desperate for rebirth. How far will its residents—especially Blandine—go to achieve it?
Gunty, a native of South Bend, earned her MFA at New York University where she was a Lillian Vernon Fellow. Her work has appeared in The Iowa Review, Joyland, Los Angeles Review of Books, No Tokens, Flash, and elsewhere. She currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.
Local bookseller Brain Lair Books will be present at this event and will have books available for purchase.
