The Body Scout by Lincoln Michel
Wednesday, April 20, 2022, 7 pm on Zoom

On April 20, BOOK CLUB welcomes Lincoln Michel (S34) to discuss his recent novel The Body Scout.

Described by Esquire as “a breathlessly paced techno-thriller characterized by stunning, spiky worldbuilding” and identified by the NY Times as one of the 10 Best Sci-Fi Fantasy Books of 2021, The Body Scout tells the story of a hardboiled baseball scout trying to solve the murder of his brother in a world transformed by body modification.

Copies of the book are circulating from the Fishers Island Library and can be purchased from Hatchette. Grab one and join the conversation with program Director Tryn Collins by emailing events@thelighthouseworks.com.

Lincoln Michel’s debut novel The Body Scout (Orbit) was named one of the ten best SFF books of 2021 by The New York Times. He is also the author of the story collection Upright Beasts (Coffee House Press) and the co-editor of the anthologies Tiny Crimes (Catapult) and Tiny Nightmares (Catapult). His work appears in The Paris Review, Granta, NOON, Lightspeed, Fence, the Pushcart Prize anthology, and elsewhere. You can find him online at lincolnmichel.com and@thelincoln.
