Join Peter Tieryas Liu as he celebrates the release of his novel, Bald New World.

Bald New World asks the question:
What if everyone in the world lost their hair?
Selected as one of Publishers Weekly‘s Best Science Fiction Books of Summer 2014 and listed on Buzzfeed’s 15 Highly Anticipated Books of 2014, the story explores the existential angst of two friends in a balding world through cinema. Taking place between China and America, the pair set off on a series of misadventures involving North Korean spies, veterans of an African War, and digital cricket fighters. Their journey leads them to discover some of the darkest secrets behind wig-making and hair in a hairless world.
Wear a wig, or hat, or just bring yourself or a friend! Did we mention free drinks?
