Liberty Hardy

Senior Contributing Editor

Liberty Hardy is an unrepentant velocireader, writer, bitey mad lady, and tattoo canvas. Turn-ons include books, books and books. Her favorite exclamation is “Holy cats!” Liberty reads more than should be legal, sleeps very little, frequently writes on her belly with Sharpie markers, and when she dies, she’s leaving her body to library science. Until then, she lives with her three cats, Millay, Farrokh, and Zevon, in Maine. She is also right behind you. Just kidding! She’s too busy reading. Twitter: @MissLiberty

Broken Sleep by Bruce Bauman

Calling all fans of Pynchon and/or giant novels that will make your brain bubble in your skull! Bauman has written a mind-bending postmodern novel, spanning 1940s to 2020s America, about a man with cancer who discovers the woman who raised him is not his birth mother. His journey to find his birth parents with take him on an adventure of art, politics, and rock and roll, in the guise of familial relations. An ambitious, epic book.

Backlist bump: Stone Arabia by Dana Spiotta (Not similar in style, but still a wonderful rock and roll novel.)
