J. Ryan Stradal: Presentation & Booksigning
J. Ryan Stradal will read from and sign his bestselling debut novel Kitchens of the Great Midwest ($25.00 Pamela Dorman ISBN 9780525429142), the story of a young woman with a once-in-a-generation palate who becomes the iconic chef behind the country’s most coveted dinner reservation. By turns quirky, hilarious, and vividly sensory, Kitchens of the Great Midwest is an unexpected mother-daughter story about the bittersweet nature of life, its missed opportunities, and its joyful surprises. Stradal edits the fiction section of The Nervous Breakdown with Gina Frangello, and his writing has appeared in The Rumpus, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and McSweeney’s: The Goods, among other places.
