Alexander Maksik on Tour: October West Coast leg

"Rivetingly plotted and beautifully written."—The New York Times (Read)

Writing on B&N Reviews, Susan Salter Reynolds described Alexander Maksik's You Deserve Nothing thus: "Reminiscent of James Salter's in its sensuality, with Francine Prose's capacious inquiry into difficult moral questions and Martin Amis's loose-limbed evocation of the perils of youth."

It is the first title to be published by Europa's new imprint Tonga Books, and was acquired and edited by the author Alice Sebold.

Alexander's national tour continues the week of 10 October with a string of West Coast dates. For more information and interview requests, please write to
