Left Bank Books welcomes Lambda Literary Emerging Writer Award winner Carter Sickels, who will discuss his new book, THE PRETTIEST STAR, on Facebook Live at 7 p.m. on June 2.


A stunning novel about the bounds of family and redemption, shines light on an overlooked part of the AIDs epidemic when men returned to their rural communities to die, by Lambda Literary Emerging Writer Award-winning author Carter Sickels. This is an urgent story about the politics and fragility of the body, of sex and shame. Above all, Carter Sickels’s stunning novel explores the bounds of family and redemption. It is written at the far reaches of love and understanding, centering on the moments where those two forces stretch toward each other and sometimes touch.
