Join us on Sunday, March 9th in the Granny Smith Room as we welcome D. Foy to Green Apple Books! Foy will be reading from his new novel Made to Break.
D. Foy was born in California’s Mojave Desert and grew up in Oakland. He studied at UC Berkeley, where he was awarded the Eisner Prize for Fiction.
His story, “Barnacles of the Fuzz,” appeared in Forty Stories: New Writing from Harper Perennial, edited by Cal Morgan. His essay on the American laundromat came out in Snorri Bros.’s Laundromat, an homage in photographs to the laundromats of New York City (powerHouse Books). You can read it when you buy the book, or here on this site.You can also read excerpts from his unpublished novel, Patricide, in Revolver and in Post Road, along with other work in Frequencies, Salon, The Literary Review, The Georgia Review, and BOMB, to name a few. His novel, Made to Break, is forthcoming this March from Two Dollar Radio. For more giggles and kicks, you can read an interview with him here. Like about nine million other writers, he lives in Brooklyn.
"Made to Break, D. Foy's debut novel, snaps. Literary, cinematic... Foy] is a writing school of one, and Made to Break ushers his literary energies into categorical existence."
