WORD: Nicholas Christopher launches ‘The Bestiary,’ to read in NYC

Author Nicholas Christopher has his fifth novel, ‘The Bestiary,’ launching on July 3 at bookstores nationwide, publisher The Dial Press announced. The Bestiary is a lyrical story about a young Vietnam vet in search of a long-lost book detailing the animals left off Noah’s Arc, a journey that takes him from the tenements of New York to the ancient libraries of Europe.

Nicholas spent five years visiting libraries across the US and traveling to locales such Venice, Paris, Hawaii to prepare for the writing of this ambitious novel. In it, his protagonist Xeno Atlas embarks on a parallel search for his father hoping to find answers to his personal history, while also finding The Caravan Bestiary, and a piece of mankind’s collective history.

The Bestiary comes after Nicholas’ previous novels ‘Veronica,’ ‘A Trip to the Stars,’ ‘Franklin Flyer,’ and ‘The Soloist.’ After breezing through his latest novel, we’d say it could be his most ambitious work to date, except he’s also written eight volumes of poetry including - get this - two novellas written in verse.

Nicholas, a New York City resident who teaches at Columbia University, has at least two readings planned this month in NYC to support The Bestiary:

Thursday, July 12th at 7 PM at the McNally Robinson Bookstore, located at 52 Prince Street.

Thursday, July 26th at 7 PM at Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Chelsea, located at 675 Sixth Avenue at 22nd Street.
