David Leo Rice Reads from A Room in Dodge City Wed., April 19 at 7 pm

David Leo Rice

presents his new novel

A Room in Dodge City

An unnamed stranger takes a hotel room in Dodge City, and then--quite matter of factly--very strange things begin to happen. Told in short vignettes, this story is full of shadowy characters who may or may not be completely real, and events that get odder as the story progresses following a kind of dream logic.  Utterly riveting, this novel is not quite like anything else you've ever read.


Praise for A Room in Dodge City:
"The writing is David Lynch meets Neil Gaiman meets Samuel Beckett and the Theater of the Absurd."---Nick Antosca,  author of The Girlfriend Game and creator of SyFy's Channel Zero.

"David Leo Rice imagines American pop culture as a Hieronymus Bosch painiting come to life, and he gives us a carnival barker's tour through a disturbing landscape of lost souls, vain ambitions, and distorted identities, ultimately finding a path to redemption through the spiritual wreckage."--Mark Beauregard, author of The Whale: A Love Story.

David Leo Rice is a writer and animator who grew up in Northampton and currently lives in New York City. His stories have appeared in numerous periodicals.  A Room in Dodge City is his first novel.
