By Sam Lipsyte

In this social satire of the highest order, Sam Lipsyte, professor and chair of the writing department at the School of the Arts, reaches new peaks of daring in a novel that revels in contemporary absurdity and the wild poetry of everyday language while exploring the emotional truths of his characters. Hark is a smart, incisive look at men, women and children seeking meaning and dignity in a chaotic, ridiculous and often dangerous world.
