Adam Levin's debut novel The Instructions was one of the most buzzed about books of 2010, a sprawling universe of "death-defying sentences, manic wit, exciting provocations and simple human warmth" (Rolling Stone).
Now, in the stories of Hot Pink, Levin delivers nine smaller worlds, snow-globes of overweight romantics, legless prodigies, quixotic dollmakers, textbook lovers, dirty old men, insecticidal fathers, nervous comedians, angry mimes, and a dumptruck covered with balloons—all shaken together, colliding and embracing. Told with Levin's unique blend of love and violence, slapstick humor and tender courtship, abstract semiotics and karate chops, Hot Pink is the work of a major talent in his sharpest form.
Adam Levin is the author of The Instructions, the winner of the New York Public Library's Young Lions Award. His stories have appeared in Tin House, McSweeney's, and Esquire. Winner of the 2003 Summer Literary Seminars Fiction Contest and the 2004 Joyce Carol Oates Fiction Prize, he lives in Chicago, where he teaches Creative Writing at the School of the Art Institute.
