About this Event

Flying Books invites you to celebrate the launch of The Head, Robyn Braun's debut novella. The Head is a surreal and penetrating tale of academia, work life, and surviving trauma.

Admission is FREE. ALL are welcome to attend. Some refreshments will be served and books will be available for purchase – of course, the author will be signing!

Reviews

Propulsive and darkly comedic, The Head, takes a good honest look at what it means to carry childhood trauma into adulthood. A whirlwind read that will make you laugh, cry, grit your teeth, and ultimately, feel at peace. Highly recommend!
-Shelly Kawaja, author of The Raw Light of Morning

Robyn Braun’s THE HEAD, is a strange, terrifying novel that reminds me of Kafka and Amparo Davilia, with flashes of Yoko Ogawa. This allegoric story about a woman who moves back and forth in the intensely patriarchal worlds of family and academia, is told with spare strokes and macabre detail, showcasing a disturbing vision for the narrow lives of the people trapped within them.Braun unflinchingly explores the dark sides of love and the desire for independence, and delivers an ending that will haunt readers long after the final line.
-John Vigna, author of No Man's Land and Bulldog
