Tommy Pico in Conversation With Roy Pérez

Tuesday, November 26, 2019, 3:30 AM

From Whiting Award and American Book Award winner and Lambda finalist, Tommy Pico, comes Feed (Tin House), the final book in the Teebs Cycle. The fourth book in Pico’s tetralogy, Feed is an epistolary recipe for the main character, a poem of nourishment, and a jaunty walk through New York's High Line Park, with the lines, stanzas, paragraphs, dialogue, and registers approximating the park's cultivated gardens of wildness. Among its questions, Feed asks: What's the difference between being alone and being lonely? Can you ever really be friends with an ex? How do you make perfect mac & cheese? Feed is an ode of reconciliation to the wild inconsistencies of a northeast spring, a frustrating season of back-and-forth, of thaw and blizzard, but with a faith that even amidst the mess, it knows where it's going. Pico will be joined in conversation by Roy Pérez, author and assistant professor of Ethnic Studies and Critical Gender Studies at the University of California.
