Local author Karryn Nagel will be at Green Apple on Tuesday, November 19 at 7pm to launch her debut novel, Stockings Required.
Stockings Required tells the story 26-year-old Pale, who after moving from the suburbs to San Francisco, is still struggling with identity and career. On a dare from her best friend, she takes a job as a cigarette and candy girl. Some of her customers are downright scary, others a delight … all of them high-maintenance and ridiculous. Felix, one of the company drivers that she lusts over, is either coolly distant or unnervingly protective, depending on his mood, but insists he just wants to be “friends”. His bravado won’t hide his secret for long; Pale’s determined to find it out. And if that wasn’t stressful enough, the Fates weren’t even kind enough to warn her of the worst, still to come. Some answers may lie in a letter from her mother, but how can she trust it won’t make things worse?
Karryn will be reading from and signing copies of her novel and refreshments will be served. She encourages you to "attend this historic, celestial, orgasmic event!"
