Blue Bicycle Books, Charleston, SC

Katie Crouch, Men and Dogs, May 21

Katie Crouch -- Men and DogsBlue Bicycle Books is delighted to welcome author Katie Crouch back to the store, signing copies of her newest novel Men and Dogs, Fri., May 21, 5 – 7 pm.

Self-proclaimed southerner-in-exile Katie Crouch will be coming home and giving Blue Bicycle Books a visit Fri., May 21, 5 – 7 pm. Since her first book, Girls in Trucks, we have been anticipating both her second visit and her newest book, Men and Dogs, out April 12.

Though she always knew she wanted to be a writer, Crouch didn’t commit herself to writing until her late 20’s, leaving her advertising job for the MFA program at Columbia. Now living in San Francisco, Crouch’s work has been featured in the New York Observer, Glamour, Tin House, and McSweeney’s. While growing up in Charleston, Crouch attended Cotillion training, but was never a debutante, an important distinction. Although she has taken herself out of the south, it’s still brimming in her work. Her sophomore novel deftly follows a woman whose life has fallen apart back to Charleston decades after her father’s unsolved disappearance to learn not only about her father, but about herself. Maybe it’s true (in both Crouch and her characters); you can’t take the south out of the girl.


Signed copies will ship after May 21.
