oin us on Wednesday 4th October when Nathan will be discussing his debut novel, before answering questions from the audience and signing copies of The Nix. Meet Samuel: stalled writer, bored teacher at a local college, obsessive player of online video games. He hasn't seen his mother, Faye, in decades, not since she abandoned her family when he was a boy. Now she has suddenly reappeared, having committed an absurd politically motivated crime that electrifies the nightly news, beguiles the Internet, and inflames a divided America. The media paints Faye as a radical hippie with a sordid past, but as far as Samuel knows, his mother was an ordinary girl who married her high-school sweetheart. Which version of his mother is true? Two facts are certain: she's facing some serious charges, and she needs Samuel's help. 'The Nix is the satirical election novel Trump’s America deserves.' - The Huffington Post “Nathan Hill is compared to Irving. Irving compares him to Dickens' - The New York Times
