Richard Yates (Melville House)
We're thrilled to have Tao Lin here for the first time, to read and sign his new novel, Richard Yates (yes, named after the famous author of Revolutionary Road). Several of his books have staff recommendations here, and we're really looking forward to this new one!
Tao Lin was born in 1983, and raised in Orlando, Florida. In 2007 Melville House published his first two works of fiction, the short story collection Bed, and the novel Eeeee Eee Eeee, simultaneously. And in 2008, published his poetry collection, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. It has been assigned
as a text book in several college-level psychology courses. In 2009,
Melville House published his novella Shoplifting From American
Apparel. His books have been translated into German, Spanish,
Japanese, Norwegian, and Serbian. He lives in Brooklyn.
