Christopher Robinson and Gavin Kovite publish novel

wotecoverChristopher Robinson (Poetry 2006) and his friend, Gavin Kovite, have written a novel together called War of the Encyclopaedists! The book was published by Scribner on May 19 and has been receiving fantastic press all month, including a review in the New York Times, a profile in the Seattle Timesand an interview in the Wall Street Journal.

The novel, based loosely on the authors’ lives, follows two friends from Seattle whose paths diverge when one of them moves to Boston to attend grad school at BU while the other deploys to Baghdad through the National Guard. They keep in touch by editing an absurd Wikipedia article about themselves.

Be sure to catch them at their reading at Harvard Book Store on Friday, June 5th at 7 PM.

You can read more about the book at their website or facebook page.

Congratulations, Chris and Gavin!
