Krista Madsen, class of '95 and the owner of Stain, a Williamsburg arts lounge, is proud to announce the release of her second novel. FOUR CORNERS is a novel set in squares beds full of absence, pick-ups that never get anywhere, tables where food pulls people together and apart. Surrounded by endless fields and no trace of ocean, Laur changes her name to Lore and imagines a new existence, full of motorcycles and escape, Johnny Crisis and vices. But the barely living and mostly dead haunt: her eight-foot tall father who looms larger than ever, mom dwindling to bone, a twin brother who burrows through the literal rubble while his sister diddles with words. Teetering between memory and dreams, Lore questions her medium, this burden of stories, this gift. "In this haunting account of a young woman's inner struggle for an individual identity and personal independence, Krista Madsen writes with a beautiful, fluid lyricism, a style that is both poetically rich and at the same time economical. The result is a distinquished and captivating novel." - author Ian MacMillan Purchase info: Four Corner is available at most B&Ns in both Manhattan and Brooklyn. It is also available online using the link below to Amazon or at Stain Bar, 766 Grand (L to Grand, one block west).
