Andrew Martin & Chaya Bhuvaneswar

October 14, 2018
7:00 pm -

Andrew Martin’s stories have appeared in The Paris Review, Zyzzyva, and Tin House’s Flash Fridays series, and his nonfiction has been published by The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, The Washington Post, and other publications. Early Work is his first novel.

“The people in Andrew Martin’s Early Work have it all—youth, intelligence, ready wit, readier irony, terminally knowing tastes in books and music, affordable rents, abundant abusable substances, prolific sexual lives, even endearing dogs—and it’s perversely exhilarating to watch them, despite their fits of good-heartedness, turn a bucolic bohemia into a hipster hellscape. This is one smart, funny, scary novel.” —David Gates, author of Jernigan and The Wonders of the Invisible World

“What a debut! Early Work is one of the wittiest, wisest (sometimes silliest, in the best sense) and bravest novels about wrestling with the early stages of life and love, of creative and destructive urges, I’ve read in a while. The angst of the young and reasonably comfortable isn’t always pretty, but Andrew Martin possesses the prose magic to make it hilarious, illuminating, moving.” —Sam Lipsyte, author of The Fun Parts and The Ask

“Beautifully executed and very funny, Early Work is a sharp-eyed, sharp-voiced debut that I didn’t want to put down.” —Julia Pierpont, author of Among the Ten Thousand Things and The Little Book of Feminist Saints

“From a simple boy-meets-girl premise and from the most basic dramatic ingredients—ardor, art, alcohol, anxiety—Andrew Martin has concocted an exceptionally funny and disturbing first novel. I found myself thinking of Goodbye, Columbus and The Mysteries of Pittsburgh—from its title and its opening sentence on, Early Work achieves the feel of a classic debut.” —Chris Bachelder, author of The Throwback Special

Chaya Bhuvaneswar
Chaya Bhuvaneswar studied Indian poetic traditions with the support of an NEH Younger Scholars grant and as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, concentrating in Sanskrit. She has received a Time-Life Writing Award as well as a Yale Elmore Willetts Prize for Fiction. Her short stories have been anthologized in Her Mother’s Ashes 2, and featured on the Other Stories podcast. An Affiliated Fellow in Writing at the Boston University Center for the Study of Asia, she lives in Newton, Massachusetts. She is the winner of the Dzanc Books Prize for her collection of stories, White Dancing Elephants
Chaya Bhuvaneswar’s prose has appeared in Narrative Magazine, Joyland, Tin House, The Millions, Chattahoochee Review and elsewhere. Her debut short story collection WHITE DANCING ELEPHANTS received the Dzanc Books Prize and centers on #MeToo stories by diverse women and LGBTQ people of color. She is a practicing physician who grew up in Flushing, Queens.

NYPL Young Lions award-winner Amelia Gray said:
WHITE DANCING ELEPHANTS is a searing and complex collection, wholly realized, each piece curled around its own beating heart. Tender and incisive, Chaya Bhuvaneswar is a surgeon on the page; unflinching in her aim, unwavering in her gaze, and absolutely devastating in her prose. This is an astonishing debut.

Jimin Han, author of Little A’s A SMALL REVOLUTION, wrote the following:

“In White Dancing Elephants, Bhuvaneswar’s daring mix of ancient, contemporary, and dystopic stories carries us to the heart of rarely exposed longing, loss, the politics of violence and endurance in remarkable, elegant, heart-stopping prose.
