Columbus: Marcia Butler on Pickle's Progress
Join us at Book Culture on Columbus as Marcia Butler celebrates the release of her new novel, Pickle's Progress,on Tuesday, April 9th at 7pm! Author Jillian Medoff will be joining Marcia in the celebration and discussion.
Marcia Butler’s debut novel, Pickle’s Progress, is a fierce, mordant New York story about the twisted path to love.
Over the course of five weeks, identical twin brothers, one wife, a dog, and a bereaved young woman collide with each other to comical and sometimes horrifying effect. Everything is questioned and tested as they jockey for position and try to maintain the status quo. Love is the poison, the antidote, the devil and, ultimately, the hero.
