Mischief & Mayhem's first book trailer, THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF JENNY X, was nominated for a MOBY award. (See below.) In October 2011, celebrated author Dale Peck publishes his first literary novel in 13 years, the dazzlingly inventive THE GARDEN OF LOST AND FOUND, a hypnotic, fierce work that explores a murderous passion between father and son. Already earning lavish praise from such authors as Joseph O'Neill (Netherland), THE GARDEN OF LOST AND FOUND is the story of a foster child, James Ramsay, who has never met his biological father. He grows to manhood in the shadow of AIDS and comes into a mysterious inheritance: a Manhattan antiques store, haunted by the spirit of his dead mother - and rumoured to contain a hidden treasure. James' odyssey takes him on a fever dream into the underbelly of New York City's AIDS epidemic - and deep into his own origins in a violent encounter with his past.
Dale Peck, novelist, critic, and columnist, is the author of ten works of fiction and nonfiction. His 2009 novel, Sprout, won the Lambda Literary Award for LGBT Children's/Young Adult literature, and was a finalist for the Stonewall Book Award in the Children's and Young Adult Literature category. He recently published Shift, a thriller he co-wrote with Tim Kring, the creator of Hereos. Visit www.DalePeck.com for info.
