Alexi Zentner and Peter Mountford at Powell’s
Award-winning authors, Alexi Zentner and Peter Mountford, were at Powell’s Books last night reading from their debut novels. Zentner read from “Touch” which he describes as a “hopeful book” of mythical realism. “A Young Man’s Guide to Late Capitalism” is Mountford’s fictional commentary on contemporary economics – you know, hedge funds and all the stuff that got us into trouble. Both are former Bread Loaf waiters, good friends and quite funny. Zentner and Mountford are rising stars whom I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of in the years to come. Thanks for coming to Portland guys!
