Join us for Josh Wardrip discussing and signing Forum. Optional RSVP is below but not required to attend the event.

In an unnamed town, an anonymous narrator scrupulously plans and commits an unspeakable, seemingly random act of mass-casualty violence. With a taut and nonlinear exposition that portrays with devastating precision an enigmatic loner's gradual transition from hedonistic anomie to an increasingly strange and sinister obsession, Josh Wardrip's brilliantly intricate debut novel gleefully dissects the raw existential horror of flophouses, mental hospitals, and everyday life. As a primal howl in the wilderness that doubles as an exquisitely structured puzzle, Forum is a meditation on delusion, interiority, and the sources of evil.


Josh Wardrip grew up in western Kentucky. He studied at the University of Kentucky and Texas State University. For many years he was active in the Austin, Texas, music scene as a musician and sound engineer. His work has appeared in a number of journals, including Chicago Quarterly Review, Gargoyle, New Orleans Review, and American Letters & Commentary. Forum is his first book. He currently lives in Asheville, North Carolina, with his partner, Nikki, and their daughter, Olivia.
