Tim Gilmore will be reading from his nonfiction novel Stalking Ottis Toole: A Southern Gothic in conjunction with Matthew Lany's reading from his new book A. Violet. A synopsis is included below.

Was A. Violet our most prolific mass murderer, or just an eloquent drift who lived a life of great disturbance? A. Violet is a novel-length accounting of a man's life, presented in stanza form, told to the author (by Violet himself) on the day before Hurricane Rita devastated Cameron Parish, Louisiana, where Violet lived his last day.
