BookStalked: Matt Dojny

bookstalker:


In the spirit of marching literarily onward, let’s talk about Matt Dojny. Matt’s Book Boroughing event with John Wray (Lowboy) was one of the most entertaining events I’ve ever attended. Not only did Matt and John reminisce about hilarious shared experiences (like working together on a “blind vampire movie” in college), they also embarked on a karaoke rendition of “Don’t You Want Me Baby” — without the lyrics handy. Matt’s debut novel The Festival of Earthly Delights has been placed at the top of book lists and lauded throughout the land. I’m delighted to be able to share his tales of public readings — which include blackberry brandy drinkin’, cat-related accusations and Clifford-the-Big-Red-Dog-crashings — after the jump.

A NOVEL BY MATT DOJNY.

OPINIONS

  • "...a perfect summer read, armchair travel in a higher key." —Los Angeles Times

  • The L Magazine: 5 Best 2012 Debuts By Brooklyn Novelists

  • Strongest Debut Book of 2012 ("What To Read Awards" for Salon.com)

  • "There's... no comparison to reading a novel that it's clear a writer had a ton of fun writing. For a light-hearted book, there's a lot of heart in The Festival of Earthly Delights." —The Rumpus

  • "If Puchai were a real country, I'd be a citizen by now, or at least an illegal alien. What a glorious novel!" —Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story

  • "A delightfully funny and heartfelt novel from a fresh voice in fiction." —Barnes & Noble, "The Long List"

  • "Dojny has created an entire country filled with characters that are so fresh and endearing, you'll find yourself wishing Puchai were a real place. I love this book." —Kristen Schaal (Flight of the Conchords, The Daily Show)

  • "Comic novels can be whimsical, or clever, or delightful, or witty, or canny, or powerful. Rarely are they all of those things. Matt Dojny's large-hearted, bright-minded novel has drawings and letters and love and loss, and now you do, too." —Ben Greenman, author of What He's Poised to Do and Superbad

  • "Matt Dojny's novel is a true delight. I can't think of any writer since Kingsley Amis who's been able to write high-minded comedy that packs such a punch. I've never enjoyed a comic novel more." —John Wray, author of Lowboy

  • "The Festival of Earthly Delights is a thoroughly enjoyable and eminently funny book that can keep a whimsical, humorous tone intact whilst addressing very valid, topical issues.  The balancing act is as impressive as you're likely to find in any modern comedy or debut novel..." —Tottenville Review

  • "...one of the most imaginative books I have read all year, an epistolary novel bursting with wonders and surprises." —Largehearted Boy
