On January 15th, we're releasing Barry Gifford's Southern Nights, a collection of three previously published novels, Night People, Arise & Walk, and Baby Cat-Face. It's an odd, hilarious, and touching trilogy. As Alan Cheuse of NPR puts it, "Gifford's night people are pure American . . . pure in their madness . . . in their evil . . . and to read about . . . pure pleasure." Filmmaker David Lynch puts it in his own way: In Gifford's world, "[i]t's wild and free and there's a kind of fearlessness, yet there's also some kind of deep understanding of life." Here exclusive to the Seven Stories Blog is the first chapter from the first book of the trilogy, Night People.

We sat down with Ivana Bodrožic, author of The Hotel Tito, to discuss why there is no such thing as "displaced children," subconscious literary influences, and her next book from Seven Stories, a political thriller called Pits that will arrive in 2020. Pardon the shakiness of the footage and the vertical video—we're working on our cinematography skills!
