A Room of One's Own is delighted to host the book launch of local literary legend Dean Bakopoulos's latest novel Summerlong!

Dean Bakopoulos, whose work New York Times bestselling author Lorrie Moore has praised as “full of insight and inspiration and the best kind of divine comedy,” returns with the keenly funny and honest Summerlong. Mixing the light-hearted with the literary, this third novel from the acclaimed writer deftly tackles the subjects of midlife crises and extramarital longing with characteristic humor and aplomb.

Summerlong is Dean Bakopoulos at his finest,” says Nickolas Butler, author of Shotgun Lovesongs. “Daringly funny, heartbreakingly sad, and forever on the watch for redemption. This is a book for any season, any reader, anywhere—it shimmers with magic, lust, and love.”

Dean Bakopoulos is the author of New York Times Notable Book Please Don’t Come Back from the Moon and My American Unhappiness. He holds an MFA from University of Wisconsin- Madison, and is the winner of a 2008 Guggenheim Fellowship and a 2006 National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship. He is the writer-in-residence of English at Grinnell College, and lives in Iowa.
