Universal Harvester paperback release - John Darnielle in conversation w/ Kevin Nguyen

John Darnielle joins us to release the paperback version of his dark, midwestern thriller Universal Harvester. 

Life in a small town takes a dark turn when mysterious footage begins appearing on VHS cassettes at the local Video Hut. There will be no ignoring the disturbing scenes on the videos. And all of a sudden, what had once been the placid, regular old Iowa fields and farmhouses now feels haunted and threatening, imbued with loss and instability and profound foreboding. For Jeremy, and all those around him, life will never be the same.

John will be in conversation with Kevin Nguyen, the digital deputy editor of GQ where he writes about books, music, and popular media.
